‘fears’

 

Mother leaving, Father coming home,
the villain in that movie that
made me cry.

losing step, scraped knees
having an accident in assembly

Secrets made public
shame and embarrassment

Falling in love and getting free
being found again, trapped.

Having children or not being able to.
Drying up and
aging gracefully

Getting sick and losing friends
losing myself

Being alone.

dying alone and being alive forever.
Alone.
