A/N: My friend wrote this poem when she found out something really bad about her boyfriend and she didn't know what to do. She still doesn't... and she's so scared.... Please read and review - PLEASE!

Fear…

Gripping my heart…
So hard that it hurts….
I want to cry out…
To just yell and curse…
But I cannot….
I cannot get enough air….
My eyes lock on yours…
And all I do is stare….
I feel as though…
I've been punched…
Hard in the stomach…
And I stand straight hunched….
So lost inside….
So scared am I….
I cannot respond….
And now, I cannot look you in the eye….
I feel myself…
Pulling away….
I thought I knew you…
Now, I cannot say….
I know it's true…
But how could you…?
I don't know what to do…
Or how to feel about you….
I'm just so scared….
Now my mind is whirling…
And I feel myself falling….
Falling… and falling… and falling…
