poetry

Doubt and shadow

Things slip away

And I clench with a

Need to express 

The fears I have

You’re inclined to

A beauty which terrifies me

With compulsion

But the clock is 

Always ticking

But watching the shadows 

Grow long and feeling

The cold more 

Than I used to

Hold me,

Pretend awhile

And I’ll continue

My guts

In one hand

Wiping away 

Tears with the other

They pass 

Like everything

Like everyone
