Fear Then And Now



The very fact that I am not frightened anymore

Frightens me.

I keep searching for fear like I would a friend I miss.

I’ve lived with her for so long

That it feels strange not to have her around.

My heart opens to love

And then hits that invisible wall

Which cautions and hold back.

Which prevents me from loving

With the innocence of the past.

And then I realise that fear is besides me once again

Only she now has a different face.
