“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’" ~George Bernard Shaw


Will there ever come a day

When I won’t shy away

From the hands of another

Be it friend

Or be it lover

Cringe from the touch

Run from the feeling

The sting of the nerves

I would wrap myself

In a cocoon of words

To avoid having to feel

Ever again

Maybe someday

Someone will find it in themselves

To find me in the shadows

And to tell me

That everything will be okay

I look forward to such an occasion

Unlikely as it may be

But as for now

I am frozen

And I am flying

And nothing is the same
