About the Poem
I had written this poem for a friend of mine who has always been afraid of one certain man throughout her whole life. It made me sad to think of the pain she was going through. I decided one day that I was just going to write a poem dedicated to her, writing it as if she were saying it herself.
I had once been scared of a particular person, which is why I sort of understood where she was coming from. I hope you enjoy my poem as much as she did. Please, if anyone has been scared of someone else for any reason, do something about it before it's too late. Don't be afraid to tell somebody. It's OK. The pain will never go away if you're scared to face it.

|I had once thought
that maybe this was life.
No love, no hate, no feelings.
My deepest feelings would never be shared.
I was so frightened,
I didn't know what to do.
Scared of this one man all my life.
Face my fear, I told myself!
But it's so hard, so confusing.
Do you know what it's like
to wonder in darkness?
It never stops, never ends.
It goes on like a story with no ending.
Do you know how it feels
to be afraid of something
that you can't do anything about?
That you didn't ask for or even think about?
Do you know what it's like? Do you know how it feels?
It's complete and pure emptiness.
