Fear Seeping Through Your Voice

by, Cassandra

"Why must we always fall?" you ask.
Maybe we only walk on coals
To escape having to walk alone.
Because pain, no matter how degrading,
Is better then the notion of solitude.
We give anything to evade the fear of nights alone,
And in doing so forsake everything we've ever known.
We only fall to stall, and in stalling we bring the fall,
So, all in all, it's not our path that trips our feet,
It's our unyielding need to avoid what needs to be seen.

"Why must we always fall?" you ask
Was that fear I heard seeping through your voice?
Well, my dear, it seems you have the answer right there
