Under your belly, you see a star, a fragment, an emotion.
It’s love, it’s lust, it’s on your mind.
Candles lit with envy.
Tears dripping with dread and endless aching.
What do you seek child? Fear follows you like a lost puppy.
You give it crumbs.
It gets bigger. It starts feeding you instead. Your sad, your angry, you’re ready to flow free and spread it out.
You learn to fear everything.
You’re afraid of not being afraid enough.
