The Fear

The Fear

the fear is . . . 

that the words

will disappear 

like exes from

lost relationships

like your childhood 

hopes and dreams

like loved ones 

from: cancer, 

suicide, old age—

all of the above.

the fear is . . . 

the unknown

the what ifs

the what 




should’ve been.

the fear is . . . 


but so much more

and not much less.
