The Comfort Zone

I keep my deepest emotions
like love and devotion
built up in a bottle
at the bottom
of the ocean

youíre diving deep

and if you dive
a little deeper
you might see
the me
that's
trapped
beneath the surface

and Iím inexplicably nervous

shaking in my boots
my foundation
quaking
beneath my feet,
tugging tightly
at my roots

but I refuse to let loose

I plant myself
firmly
into the dirt,
taking shelter
from the tumultuous
winds of change
and the torrential
rains of hurt

so, I sit in stagnant waters

a stick in the mud
stuck
begging for change,
questioning my worth
and letting fear
steer this ship
right into the earth
