I'm so scared

So afraid of rejection

But so ready to explode with emotion

I've got to do it

Take a deep breath

And…

….

Change my mind

Turning swiftly

Walking away

Too scared

"Next time" I tell myself

"NO!" My heart screams

Stop

Turn back around

Deep breath

Walk toward him

And…

….

Ask him

He said…

poof

Damn it!

Not again!
