O' fear, you crawl inside me,
like I'm your den, and you're the unchallenged supreme
and whatever to darkness touches,
is your realm!
I've stopped filtering light through my skin.
O' fear I'm filled with you to every pore
I can feel my chest contained
my bones bursting
and your tickling crawl under my skin
I can feel my billions of nerves sensing, fear!
O' fear you smile at me, not cunningly
but like an old friend
you know, I may go to anyone
I may go anywhere
I'll have you!
O' fear, I'm frightened of you,
I'm frightened of,
you dissolving me into old-book memories
I'm frightened of not giving up
I'm frightened of being nothing!
O' fear, all I've sometimes, is you!
walking through the labyrinth of my portrayals
I quest for a place to hide!
Don't do I have a choice to yield?
I yield fear!
I'm frightened of you 'fear'
but I do wonder
what'll happen on the day
when I'll give up!
when I'll accept, I'm nothing!
O' fear, I wonder,
will you be still there?
