fear

fear holds me.

snaking his hand into my chest,

he slowly,

softly,

burns

against my lungs.

his other hand has dissolved around my gut,

into it.

it twists and stretches in strange, unpredictable ways.

his whisper tickles my ear,

sounding exactly like my own,

murmuring worst case scenarios accompanied by

jolt!

after

jolt!

of my heart, my stupid heart, that is rebelling against this heat;

running, racing, bolting within its restrictions

needing to escape this suffocation;

determined to outrun its fate.

because my heart,

my stupid heart, doesn’t know

that you cannot escape

what already resides

within you.
