I Will Not Fight In the Shadows

From a safe distance

 

Anxiety sets in

As my sweaty clenched fists

Cross in front of me

 

I seek refuge

 

In my mental isolation chamber which

Distances me from opportunity

While comforting me from possibility

 

Leaving me

Straight jacketed by my own fear

 

My attempt to lash out

Is silenced by my harsh judgment

Knowing it will only showcase my insecurity

 

Therefore

My mind must dissect you

From across the room

 

Beginning at your legs

 

For arm’s length

Is far too close

 

During an unsuspecting battle of wits

 

The next thing

I know

We are shaking hands

 

Saying “It is nice to meet you”
