Me Too – Written Wednesday 17th July 2002 (Aged 27)

Me Too

do you think –
i am a tower of strength
the tears run inside
but i am scared too
so scared
i shake in lovelorn shoes
do you think –
the bed remains silent
do you think –
my head is not confused
fear is never redundant
do you think –
i walked into this
without a care in the world
well, as i walk out of the house
i can feel the cold
do you think –
i am not hanging on
to the thinnest of threads
that i do not have
just a little dread
