I am frozen.
I can't move
Stares penetrate me,
Seeing straight to my soul,
And all the stress comes crashing down around my head.
My hands are shaking,
May teeth gnaw at my lip,
And I stumble over my words as I try to talk.
I look for help, but find none,
And I become colder and colder.
I may seem bright and happy,
But on the inside,
I have shards of ice through my heart.
I am scared of speaking in front of crowds,
Even though I love to talk face-to-face.
I hate to hurt someone,
Even though I act like I don't care, like I am ok.
I don't say the words, not in front of anyone,
But I do think them. Often.
But I am a good person,
At least, I try to be,
I don't know anymore,
I don't know who I am.
But then I turn to you,
And you show me the light inside you,
Which can be inside me,
You comfort me when I am Frozen,
Light a fire in my heart that melts the ice,
And teach me to breathe again.
