Actuality and Angst #6

Can you ask me
About what is scaring
Me this very minute,
What it’s like to be run down
And stepped over,
What it’s like to scream
In a muffled voice,
What it’s like to be ashamed
Of someone else’s doing
What it’s like to roll over
And forget where the ache was
Or who gave it,
What it’s like to slumber without dreams
That have disappeared,
What it’s like to kiss the anger
Building inside me at
Midnight as i seek comfort
In free verse – a territory
I never thought I’d touch.
