she was so uncomfortable with love
that it triggered a sense of danger
an urge to flee
an inexplicable desire to squirm
out of its tightening grip
love made her feel unsafe
so scared that she extrapolated
from its warm smothering embrace
that it was trying to kill her
or at the very least
take a part of her
so unique to her being
that nothing would be left
just the empty shell
she already struggled to hold onto
