Fear

You led yourself down here
amongst the darkened reeds,
to snatch the cold immersion
and breath it into being.

Speech won't drop its flare
the corners here still crawl,
tell yourself a summers day
as the night eats out your eyes.

You led yourself down here
in tangled clumps of hair,
to feel the weight of mud
and dare to shape its face.

Footsteps fast behind you
race home on rain soaked streets,
dragged nails inside a wardrobe
as silence hears a heart beat.

You led yourself down here.
