If they give you ruled paper, write the other way

I remember
Being afraid
Afraid of you
When you first
Locked your gaze on mine

I thought I was wrong
No way would he do
Do what he did
Cornering me
For unknown reasons
To hurt

It wasn’t just me
Who was hurt
I know that now
But they do their best
To forget unpleasantness

I lost that ability
I broke down
Still I am reeling
Don’t know why
I can’t stop this
I lost my control

I wobble on unsteady legs
Legs that no longer can hold
The weight of my emotions

I still wonder
Are my fears justified?
I worry, never am I
Given a break from myself

Don’t know anymore
What is supposed to be going on
I fake a smile
That pains my jaw
But I can’t release it
Or else I will shatter

Got to keep moving
I don’t know how
I am unsteady
