The Words Are My defense

I try to hide.

Words upon words. My wall against

The fear, the longing.

Books, texts anything to keep my heart beating.

I want to cry.

I feel them, no longer pressing

but still, waiting

single file for their chance to run

I could die.

not breathing, falling in vats of ice I couldn't feel

to cold, to numb.

It's coming,

I turn, to what?

Another book.

Another text.

Another fear I've yet to drown.
