I’m paralyzed by fear
I feel so much
It’s a lot to take
I’m changing
The old skin is falling
Peeling away
Layer after layer
But the new one isn’t there yet
So I sit
Feeling uncomfortable as fuck
Raw and tender
The only thing that’s beating
Is my heart
And echoes of the silence
From afar

Knowing You
Holding me
Knowing pain
For a while I’ll ask You to stay

Here I am
