SAFETY NET

Trapped in a bubble “protected.”
My own fears are leaving me neglected.
Why do these walls come up once the emotions come out?
What am I afraid of?
I’m alone.
Not because there is no desire for my company.
But because company can break my heart.
Abandon me.
Love me one day and ridicule me the next.
I want love just as much as anyone else.
But when I get it, can I keep it?
Or will the force fields I’ve put up to drive away the pain,
also drive away the love?
