This week’s challenge is What is holding you back?
From, calensariel, Impromptu, Promptlings.
The Invisible Me
I’m too soft and creamy, like melted chocolate.
Naive to a fault, until it’s too late.
Vulnerable, like a wafer and ice-cream in-between,
During a local hot day of one-hundred degrees.
Afraid of being visible to the vast unseen.
Confidence is scrambled, and of low esteem.
Drowning, like our worlds sick honey bees.
Choking on my words of melancholy and wanna be’s.
Crawling like a man cut-off below the knees.
Falling like a stone, and I’ve yet to set her free.
Far too trusting for these rough open seas.
And no idea of what, I want to do or be.
Scared of my own illiterate tendencies.
Wondering if a publisher would even read me.
