Label Maker

Call it what you will

Give it a name

Wrapped neatly

Round peg in a square hole

Label it, categorize, alphabetize 

Comfort zone is not your own

Call it what you will

My experience is below the belt

Anxiety felt pressure build up

Pit of my stomach

Elephant sitting on my chest

Close my eyes and realize

It is always your face I see

It’s always your voice I hear

Calling my name drift away

Images coated in a protective cloak

You kneeling wrapped in red

Reaching out I touch you for the last time

You are always kneeling wrapped in red

Sirens blare, sirens blare and I move forward

But you are never there – not anymore

Deep breath in, slow blow out

Comfort in the night once the fear subsides

A protective cloak arms of darkness protective cloak

Comfort in the night until the light of day – breaks

Creeping in magnifying all my fears and deals – with God

So I shift with the tide; deep breath in, slow blow out

Shadows fade, monsters hide

Comfort in the light of day until the night returns – repetitive loop

Deep breath in, slow blow out

Comfort in the night once the fear subsides

A protective cloak arms of darkness protective cloak

Comfort in the night until the light of day – breaks

Creeping in magnifying all my fears and deals – with God

Call it what you will

Give it a name

Wrapped neatly

Round peg in a square hole…
