Fight or Flight Mode:

Fight or Flight mode has taken control,

Our potential future my flight mode has stole!


The uncertainly of your feelings is too much for me,

So I sabotage our happiness to protect me!


My heart feels heavy! 

What can I say,

My flight mode has protected me

Up to this day!


Being vulnerable is like a thrashing cable full of sparks!

Sending shock waves around my body & straight to my heart!


There is a feeling of safety now that you’re gone,

Followed by a feeling of dread, and what have I done?


Certainty and reassurance are definitely the key,

Knowing that you want to be there for me.


Doubt and uncertainty trigger my flight,

Then in a flash I am gone, and way out of sight!


The euphoric feeling has now gone,

as I return to that familiar feeling, of a life for one!
