Scared to Feel

By: Hanna Haitham

ran from me
you ran from me
to escape insecurities

you decided to leave
after i helped you heal
because you were scared
that i made you feel

cower away
never to show your face
never to return again

and after you drained most of me
you ran away because you could feel

fragile masculinity
is what took you from me
but can’t you see the irony
it’s my savior and your enemy

cower away
once again
but you can never pretend
that you can run because of me
because i allowed you to heal

and after you drained most me
you ran away because you could feel

you ran from me
leaped away from me
to nurse your insecurities
but my dear how can you ever heal
if you don’t allow yourself to feel
