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.
