I let myself go from the happiness I had some time ago.
At one time I was filled with joy, not unlike a newly young boy.
Lately I have let fear win instead of thinking of what I hold dear.
I just started getting help instead of letting myself just cry out and yelp.
My partner has seen me cry,
but doesn’t know what to do other than pry.
I need better methods to learn to cope to help give myself hope.
Sometimes hope feels far away and work just like a tightened rope.
How do I feel at ease, when sometimes all I want is to freeze?
