Always Afraid

I’m always scared, I’m always at guard my heart, from pain skin from scar she’s always in arms, but given to such Need to love passion to clutch true, unchained naked, ashamed we’re both afraid we count up the gain the loss, the fuel To carry us there in creation’s direction distance, fare We drag on the castle stilts on wheels, slaved afraid dreading the kill always scared, bandaging scars always afraid always so far
