Look another original piece. Though this one has been written from my creative writing class and not my English class. Thanks to everyone who read all my other stories and I hope you enjoy this one as much as the others.

As always all comments, flames or anything else you want to send me is cool, but comments would be a nice encouragement to write more. My email address is [email protected]

Afraid
By Cindlemain
Rated PG just in case



I stand here teetering on the edge of an abyss
A deep black hole that seems to have no end
It shows me things that I'm not sure I want to see

It shows me my life as it could be
If only I would just move forward
And take a chance, but I'm too scared
Because I don't know where it will take me

I want to move away from the abyss
But I can't because there is a large rock behind me
Not allowing me to go back
Only letting me stay where I am

I try to go back anyway
Because I felt safe back there
And I know what's back there
I can't go back though
Because that time has passed
And there's nothing I can do
To get it back

And so here I stay
Not being able to go back
And to scared to move forward.
