Isolate short poem

don’t look at me.
My heart starts to beat
a little faster
from anxiety.
speed through my mind
Do I look gross?
Do I look fine?

don’t shout my name.
I go insane.
I lose my words.
I lose my strength
runs through my veins
A spotlight shines
I’m afraid.

don’t get close.
I can be cold.
I just don’t want
you to love me so.
brought me a gun,
told me to leave
when things get tough.

I once was walking in the dark , I thought I was living the life. Thank goodness for Rehab. They started to set thing right, It was there I found The Lord and and saw the Light. Now these poems I started to see and hear. When they come in sight I write. Thank You LORD. Now all the other, the past is, how they put it. Just water under the bridge. GONE. Never to return. Now I am Just a laid back kind of girl, Who's about to spread her wings and fly away to a brighter day.

@Alicia_Alicia the starkness and vividity of the thoughts you express are the strong points of your verse, every time. Dramatic and yet so simple!
