I hide.


I feel completely unequipped to face this world.

and my only coping mechanism

is to isolate,

and deal with my sensitivity alone.

disclaimer: there is nothing wrong with this.

but I desire connection,

and as much as I am terrified of it,

my heart longs for it.

with your fierce priestess compassion,

you have shown me

that when I hide,

part of me

is scared to see

and scared to be seen.

at first,

I want to run when I look into the eyes of such beauty

but after a second,

the facade of separation dissolves,

and my spirit

r e m e m b e r s

to open my heart

to what is right in front of me

because everything I ever wanted

is right here.
