Unregulated Emotions:

My breathing feels shallow,

A heavy heart.

Confused by my emotions

Where do I start?


I feel euphoric when I am around you,

But the distance creates doubt?


A thrashing cable of emotions,

A cluster of sparks.

I had some insecurities, right from the start!


You are beautiful, intelligent

& confident too.

I am drawn to that positive energy in you.


I start wondering whether you can really see,

The complex web that makes up me?


My mind has a narrative of you are too good for me.

Anxious about meeting your friends and family.


Fight or flight mode gets triggered,

What should I do?

Should I run, or should I hold onto you?


These emotions make me feel out of control,

Previous relationships these emotions they stole.


Sabotaged, destroyed, before we get off the ground,

Despite you being grounded and completely sound!
