Baggage

My mind gets tied up
With the words I want to say
Yet confusion…vulnerability
Stand in my way
Cryptic confessions
Which could betray my heart
Perhaps you have known
From the very start
I bob and weave
To protect my thoughts
Holding back..til overwrought
With consequences of actions
Constraining my brain
I squirm and learn
From the fear of shame
Secrets of myself
Which are dealt like cards
Till all that remains
Are the broken shards
Can you pick them up
Without the shedding of blood?
Or will you drown yourself
In my emotional flood
Questions left unanswered
Is how it shalll be
To protect my walls
Does it keep me free?

Artist's Description

Holding back things you want to say…feel…is a hard way to live…especially if you are holding back in fear of feeling shamed or unloved….Learning to love yourself can be a hard lesson to learn..especially if you have been told you are unlovable by someone you love…
