A Poem by IffyPigeon

Oh well

I get anxiety when I think about how I want to be more than just a face to you.
Because I know I shouldn’t care, but I still do.
I’m a compulsive liar and I’m mortified of drowning,
For some reason, that made you want to know more about me.
You grew worried about who I was and what I would become,
While I was in the middle of an ocean not knowing how to swim.
I’m nothing more than a love-sick addict who lost their way.
But I found my way back to you, and I’m begging you to stay.
Don’t lose the memories of loving someone “like me”,
Maybe my biggest fear wasn’t drowning,
But being lonely.

My fear as well is to be alone...

This is beautifully written as much for its honesty as its introspection. Its only when reading something so open and honest that we realise how much we sugar coat our image in writing, when you have shown how beautifully it can be done.
Like this a lot.
