Insecurity String

with each in and out breath

keeping feet rooted to the floor

so fear’s onslaught doesn’t cause panic rising

horrible fight or flight response

I could stay or I could go

hide where I feel safe

away from the fears that I am not enough or too much

the power you have; knowing you can break me

the mirror reflecting all the difficult things I see within

all those that itch and crawl in the void

a spider’s web this insecurity string
