Poem: Too Afraid To Feel

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

Poem Summary

Too Afraid to feel is a poem about how she feels after she has been betrayed & hurt by him, but he wants her back. She wants to hide away but she misses his hugs. She wants to enjoy life but she can't see a rainbow. She wants to believe in him, but she can't forget the hateful words he spoke.

Too Afraid To Feel

She wants to curl up in a ball
and never come out,
to hide from the pain
she is feeling.

She wants to feel his magic hugs
chasing the turmoil away,
but they are full of anger
leaving her in despair.

She wants to stop crying
but she cannot,
she wants to smile and laugh
but she is too weak,
she wants to enjoy her life
but she can't see the rainbow.

She wishes he had not changed
but she cannot turn back the clock,
she misses his loving arms around her
but she cannot forget the hatred
in the words he spoke.

She wants to believe in him
but she cannot bear this pain in her heart,
she wants to feel alive again
but she is too afraid
to take a chance.
