An Old Friend

You don’t know fear

You haven’t felt it crawling around

                          under your skin, burrowing into your bones

Fear isn’t your constant companion

Casting a grey shadow over every waking and sleeping moment

Fear hasn’t made you an island, adrift in your very own menacing sea

You just don’t know fear

You couldn’t possibly know it like me

Oh how I envy you, what a glorious life you must live

Surrounded by love and light and happiness

Never to know the choking grip of fear
