Fear

I feel naked, exposed,

My words no longer secrets

Unleashed, not retainable,

Replaced with only regrets

I can’t take it back

It’s too late, it’s already out there

I meant to keep it to myself

Never meant for it to be shared

Now I’ve bared my soul

From the depths of my core

Now I stand here waiting,

Waiting to be torn

I take a deep breath

Preparing for the lashing

The tongues with their questions

Begging for a rehashing

Craving intimate details

Of words I shouldn’t have spoken

Silence swallows me

And then, I realize I’ve awoken

Judgment, retaliation,

Rejection from the world

These fears so big,

Fester inside one small girl
