A poem about 'metrophobia'. I've done about 2(?) pieces on phobias already and I was thinking about making it into a series. Should I? Thank you for reading. <3

I Can Burn Worlds

M E T R O P H O B I A

M E T R O P H O B I A is the intense fear of poetry.

Words I string like callous decorations;

Words I string like callous decorations; sour dispositions,

Words I string like callous decorations; sour dispositions, characters tainted gold

Words I string like callous decorations; sour dispositions, characters tainted gold and twisted beyond relief.

It is more than an ingrained fear,

It is more than an ingrained fear, ink darker than my desires

It is more than an ingrained fear, ink darker than my desires bleeding through

It is more than an ingrained fear, ink darker than my desires bleeding through my desiccated self.

It is the realisation,

It is the realisation, a split second of dread,

It is the realisation, a split second of dread, that though I am comfortable building up plots after heroes,

It is the realisation, a split second of dread, that though I am comfortable building up plots after heroes, worlds set in cursive,

It is the realisation, a split second of dread, that though I am comfortable building up plots after heroes, worlds set in cursive, embedded,

I have just as much mettle

I have just as much mettle to gather these paper pansies,

I have just as much mettle to gather these paper pansies, crushed all in one grip.

I have just as much mettle to gather these paper pansies, crushed all in one grip. And set them alight

I have just as much mettle to gather these paper pansies, crushed all in one grip. And set them alight with aurous enmity.

Radiant ruination.
