A-NOTHER poem. Well, if you want to read it, go ahead...

    1
    Admit it
    Say it to yourself
    Can you be bit
    By the past?
    Two years later
    Can effects last?
    Well, take a line
    From a song
    "I'm living proof," yes, mine
    You tried not to
    Admit it
    Much less to
    Yourself than anyone besides
    Admit it to yourself
    You're one who hides
    From the thing
    Lingers and lasts
    It does bring
    The word I'm avoiding
    Just write it
    Just write that thing
    Don't say "I can't"
    You can
    Don't say "I can't"
    Stop avoiding it and write
    Because what thing
    Could sting and bite
    Two years later?
    Don't think of every other
    Negative adjective there
    When the one word is in front
    Of your mind
    You don't have to hunt
    Much to find
    That one word
    In your mind
    Don't say "I can't"
    You can
    Don't say "I can't"
    Don't say you can't
    Or I can't
    Don't say you can't
    Don't say that you can't
    Don't
    Say
    You
    Can't
    Say

They're usually about negative emotions and stuff... but when I finish them I usually feel a little better...

Yeah... fear. Of things from the past...
I had no idea it would be powerful. I just write poems when I'm feeling something or felt something, usually...
