Under The Knife

Fear’s shadow lingers in the crack below the door

I keep that door locked

Even though sometimes it swings wide open

I pace by it from time to time

But I don’t even touch the handle

I hate to twiddle my thumbs

While I think up the worst case scenario

I don’t even like to talk about it

But maybe if I share

You’ll see it too

and then

In front of our eyes

The door will disappear

-Saschia

Fear is healthy and normal but it’s not meant to control your entire life.

  1. The door needs to be closed
    but sometimes gets opened
    it seems that it was by itself
    like it’s showing us an omen
    but you don’t need to be afraid
    don’t hesitate for a moment
    you’re not alone and have help
    hope you realize it in this poem.
