still too scared

if i wasn’t so afraid of rejection,
i’d probably be writing you the
most ridiculous romantic poem
ever created
but instead
i’m just drinking away the misery
trying to remember your face
while music plays in the background
and the football game is on the t.v.
and the dog chokes on its old age.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
