Poem: Fear Stops Him

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Let Me Go" by 3 Doors Down

He thinks his life
is a train wreck
waiting to happen,
so he pushes love away.

He knows she is good for him
but he fears his past
will come back to play
hurting her along the way.

He loves her so much
he wants her to leave,
even though, it will rip
a hole in his heart.

His fear from a long time ago,
stops him from reaching for the star
he wants to share his heart with,
believing they are better off
being apart.
