Trust Me

I want to run to you
I want you to tell me everything will be OK
I want the freedom to hear my heart, not my head
To loosen the chains
To trust
to let go…

I want your romance
Your wide-eyed enthusiasm
Your intensity to engulf me

But when I lose my footing I may fall
Where?
I don’t know

Perhaps to the dark places of my childhood fears
Where I am small, and the world is so big
Where I could close my eyes tight
And concentrate a little harder
Making everything
Move farther away

Or…
To the place of light
Where I am alone and at peace
Where everything I am, have been, have seen, have done
Has now become Me

Is the pain of getting there
Worth the glory
How do I open-up and remain whole
When all my energy is spent
Holding onto, and almost hoarding my experiences
While holding them in such high esteem that they are
Practically Untouchable
TOUCH ME

Trust Me

Artist's Description

As a child, one of my coping mechanisms was to hide myself by becoming small. As an adult, in times of trauma I find myself revert to this pattern…only now it is not so scary!
