Poetry - When You Worry
When you worry,
you make me worry.
I'm not asking
to play pretend,
but your worry
makes me worry
that I'm closing in
on the end.

When you comfort,
I don't feel comfort,
I feel like this
is where I should break.
When you worry,
it makes me worry.
When you soothe,
it makes me feel my ache.

I'm a warrior,
I need to be strong.
I need to focus
and keep a clear sight.
Once the battle
is over and done with,
then you can worry,
then I can cry.
