what are you afraid of...

i am afraid.

i am afraid.

i am terrified

i am terrified of the way

i am terrified of the way wind shatters

i am terrified of the way wind shatters through the room

through the room like a loose hand knocking

through the room like a loose hand knocking a glass from the counter

through the room like a loose hand knocking a glass from the counter,

of the way it slams

of the way it slams the cupboards

of the way it slams the cupboards like the door couldn't hold back

of the way it slams the cupboards like the door couldn't hold back the storm

of the way it slams the cupboards like the door couldn't hold back the storm,

like it was something to break.

i am afraid.

i am terrified

i am terrified of the way

i am terrified of the way the shadows lap

i am terrified of the way the shadows lap at the corners of my room

the shadows lap at the corners of my room like the lake i almost took

the shadows lap at the corners of my room like the lake i almost took a midnight swim in

the shadows lap at the corners of my room like the lake i almost took a midnight swim in,

during midwinter when

during midwinter when my breath fogged in the air

during midwinter when my breath fogged in the air and my cheeks were popsicles

during midwinter when my breath fogged in the air and my cheeks were popsicles,

and the shadows

and the shadows are like frostbite.

i am afraid.

i am terrified

i am terrified of the way

i am terrified of the way my hand shakes

i am terrified of the way my hand shakes like sticks in a stream

and the way my throat catches

and the way my throat catches like a piece of lint in my shirt

and the way my throat catches like a piece of lint in my shirt,

and

i

i am

i am afraid

i am afraid.

i am afraid. // hymn
