I'm scared
I'm terrified
It's such a constant

Never in my life
      have I felt
      consumed by a

My heart beats
      with fear

Each thud
Each dud

Quietly it goes
       pumping this
       pain throughout
       my bones.

I am scared.
My feet almost quiver as they hit the pavement,

Terrified to take another step.

Petrified to move forward.

For it forces my mind to realize what comes next,

What is in front of me,

What came before that step.

Can’t I just stand still?

Make time stop,

Tangle myself in a freeze frame,

And wait for you to arrive to resume?
