Fear

You come in so quietly on little feet, blanketed in whispers of others,

Steal into wary hearts without sound, a waveless wonder.

Such subtle entrance draws backward giving way for conquest.

Imagination captivates with its immense vistas and scope,

Flattering self with image,  size and strength.

Digging trenches, erecting battlements, gathering arms,

Preparing defenses for endless conflict without bounds,

We drink up our affection draining joyful wellsprings dry to the dregs.

Collaboration’s sharpening silences, as dull blades slice inward.

Promise of life pours out like spilled blood on frozen pavement.

Lovers make strangers, friend vanquishes friend; a body lies dismembered.

Yet we feel no shame.

I'd love to hear from you! :)
