Don’t come too near. 

I have a fear, 

actually lots of them.

At the surface is the fear of attachment.


I know you will abandon me

if I give you a lot of care.

I have this fear

because generally people do leave,

especially when I am in dire need

of their presence, assistance or guidance.


I fear trusting anyone completely

because people have taken advantage 

of my trust and faith

that I bestow them with.


I fear expressing my emotions,

especially care and love

because of the reasons mentioned above.

I have a lot of problems with few solutions.


Until I am able to

leave my fears behind.

Please be kind

to me and to you

and stay away if you have, in your mind,

deep emotions to offer.

My healing will take time. 

Meanwhile, I don’t want you to suffer.


Stay Away
