I AM AFRAID

Folder: 
TROUBADOR'S CHOICE

 

Out in the cold

barefoot;

a little damp

I am unprotected

and hesitant

 

I lied to you

I am afraid

 

Toes stepping on

wet blades of grass

fingers grasping

the drenched pines;

mistaking a street light

for the moon

 

I am unable

to achieve the desired

state of transcendence

lotus prayer effort

unfulfilling

 

I am still lost

out here

without my security blanket

I am unable

to procure my visions

in lucid form

 

I did lie to you

I really am afraid

of the night

I really afraid

of the wild

 

courage to fake

the first step

that is a laugh

 

I am too tepid

I can not even move

of what we knowingly once thought might prevail as perfection.
