The stupidest thing I can think of

is hurting you

The stupidest thing I can think of

Is hurting someone you love

Because you’re afraid of change

Because you’re afraid to feel the bad things

Because you’re afraid if you don’t do everything right

They won’t love you anymore

And I do it so often that sorry isn’t a word

It’s a curse

Being stubborn as stone will grind us both to dust

I have not earned this pride

I am a wounded animal

Armored in scars

Believing survival is all that is left

Afraid to trust

So I assume the worst

I want nothing more than to dedicate my life to writing, so I figured I would start here to test the waters. I will be submitting stories to as many communities as possible.
