Fear

Poem By Kailyn Ortiz

Black coal
Burning in the depths of my soul
Heart of fire
Can’t escape the dire
Heat; the flame
Hurts so badly I’m calling your name
Your Love is poison

Icy roads
I’m traveling alone
I want desperately to go home
But I can’t
I fear the return...
I don’t want to live like this
Forever isolated by your stain
I miss my friends
But, I can’t see you again

Fear
The venomous feeling creeping through my veins
The ice cold chill, freezing my blood
I can’t deny it anymore
Loving you makes my blood run cold
You’ve killed me

Why do I fear you?
Is it you I fear?
Maybe it’s the fear of falling in love again
Maybe the pain of getting hurt
Of either hitting the ground running
Or lying sprawled, dead, in the dirt
Does anyone understand love?
Can anyone truly comprehend how the pain never ends?

Let it be said by any wise man
‘You always fear what you don’t understand’

I See You

I gaze at you from afar
You smile and laugh as if you don’t know

The Forgotten

I gaze at you
You stare at her
She looks off into the distance
