Cold Feet #Poetry #Journey

I got cold feet
feet so cold that the moment I saw you
I ran
Our eyes met for a moment
and my body language betrayed me
it feels impossible to talk to you
let alone stay in the same room with you
I don’t have any confidence in myself
in the person I used to be
things are different now
better – I feel good about me
but there is still a sense of unworthiness
a feeling of shame
lingering over me
I would love to go out with you
if you wanted to
I just don’t think I have it in me
to ask
