The Fear of Success

Be my distraction darling.
I promise, it’s just for a while.
I’ve got a million thoughts erupting in my mind.
I cant seem to focus, so lets go get a drink.
I’m dying to drown my brain, so i don’t have to think.

I’m always aware of the time.
Not in the ‘it’s-half-past-seven’ kind of way.
The stress of seconds lost, consumes me everyday.

I’m scared all the time.

What am I afraid of?

Oh dear, how could I possibly explain?
Well lets put it this way.
I’m afraid of nothing and everything.

What does that mean?

Well it’s quite simple, really.
I’m afraid of trying everything.
And I’m afraid of being nothing.

There’s so many things I want to do!
But I’m afraid to start.

The truth, my love.. Is that I’m so scared of losing.
But, what scares me even more is winning.
