Fear

I feel like I can’t hear them when they speak
Though they are near.
It’s harder now to stand
When I am dizzy from the fear
Of rejection, fear
Of regret.
Fear of seeming stooped when I am standing quite erect.

And once upon a time the lines came easier than now.
I thought I was alright but things are slowly going south-
Further from the center,
Just the border-

At the mouth-
Where the sea always washes in when
I am trying to swim out.
