Contained in being

Like her, I thought fear would disappear when I wrote- Scraps of life sparked alight, Bright red flight, pretty prayer papers heat lifted high in secret night. Knowing no doubt they would deal living death more frightful than buried thoughts... My mind thinks in poems already burnt, drifting ash- faced grey mortal whisps- brought down to earth. Fear's urn awaits... 19/09/2017.
