Poet 11586

Fearing new breath

Heart is beating far too quickly
Soon, I fear, my chest will burst
As days pass by without blood
Within my body, I fear the worst
To young to trap him in this cage
I hold myself, I'm so afraid
What possibly could grow within
For expressing love, what price to be paid?
I'm not yet sure if it is all true
I hope it's just paranoia slapping my face
In not ready to do this
Not yet ready to take a mother's place
Is it right to drag him into my worries?
Or is it just cruel to tell him
When right now it's not yet fact but fear
