An empath‘s story

Fear. I am not afraid
of anything but you and what
you represent to me.

To fear you means to abandon
me for the sake of others. It
means to clip my wings so they
can be attached to somebody else.

And as much as I enjoy being helpful
and supportive, it does cause me to slowly
die inside if boundaries remain unseen.
Afraid to live, afraid to die—a vicious cycle
that will never end

unless I attach those wings back onto myself.
