She had a fear of death

The Trees Shook

By E.R. Blair

She had a fear of death so great,

That the trees shook In her presence

Nothing was ever enough

Nothing was ever enough To leave a mark

To say she'd been here

Who would know?

Who would care?

they say they do,

That they'll remember her

But their tongues speak for themselves

While their mouths remain closed

She can't imagine it

As some place up in the sky She can't imagine it

Or some place down in the earth

For it makes them seem

For it makes them seem Too real

For it makes them seem Too real Too close

For it makes them seem Too real Too close Too fragile

When she knows they are none of these things.

Not even a pencil

Can mark the utter brilliance

Of her mind

And the emptiness

Of her spirit

as it withers away

Drained by the pleading screams

Of the ones who cry "help!"

From a step below her

And the ones who cry

And the ones who cry "Climb!"

from one step above

So she climbs

Clinging to nothing but her own ideas

To save her life
