She Isn’t Scared

April 15, 2010

You found somewhere that scared you.

Because when the fear runs out
its time to move on.

But fear is the currency of the courageous
and the fuel to survive.

You will never be mediocre
if you are always scared for your life
and you will never be more alive
then when you’re struggling to survive.

When your life flashes before your eyes
you won’t mind
to watch it all again.


Cold and Dead; Fear

April 9, 2010

I get angry, at what I say
because it’s not what I wanted to say.
I get frustrated at the answers
because they aren’t the answers
to the questions I didn’t ask.
The responses to the things
I keep inside
disappear behind the conversation
that goes to the place
conversations go to die.
I watch each one pass
like a coroner
I examine them and find their cause of death.
Cold and dead.
They all die of the same thing,
fear.

Getting in deeper
sinking feet, swirling water
undertow current.


I Know Now Why I Never Ask
