Tell Me Why I Can’t Commit

i don’t write poems, i disrupt prose

fear

when i must choose to stay or to leave,

facing a future of forevers with you —

not only you,

but also this place, this feeling,

this terror.

scared of commitment

I struggle to decide between now and later,

because how can I keep a promise I don’t know I’m making?

What if things change,

but we stay the same?

failure

incompatibility

fear

I am afraid to commit, for existence is an abyss of unknowns.
