Our World is Scary

I'm just so afraid of what this world of mine has in store.
Frivolous as they may be my fears frighten me to the core.

Death makes me panic and mocks my existence.
Sometimes I'm afraid to try, frozen in resistance.

I'm afraid to open my heart and to let others peer in.
I lock my feelings away from myself so I don't let the fear in.

I fear happiness, I become paranoid it'll always be taken away.
I fear loneliness yet I know it's safer, to my shameful dismay.

Love is what I fear most. My heart just breaks so easily.
All I want is a hug I think. It would mean the world to me.
