fear?

is it fear, I wonder

when a person’s voice

can be poison

and your heart trembles

at the mere thought

that you will be dead

if even a whisper of those lips

would enter your uncovered heart

is that your weakness then?

perhaps, or perhaps not

since words spoken often carry

the feelings of the one who speaks

if those feelings mean to hurt

it might actually hurt

however, if it means to kill

it would cause a deeper wound

yet not kill

it then is your fear

that might play the role

since if those whispers hurt

your deepest core

the cause might be

the extent of your belief

your willingness to allow

especially when

you love not yourself as much

be it your words or your will

and you find no need

to defend that delicate self,

an identity built through the years,

that soul that’s solely yours.
