Fear


Not knowing fear

I see your intent from afar
but distance offers me safety
I stand broad not knowing fear

I hear the strum of gut in the wind
I see your intent from afar
I stand broad not knowing fear

Chaos all around, sound drowned by bedlam
Men screaming in fear
I stand broad not knowing fear

I hear the whoosh
Vibrating the air around me
I stand broad not knowing fear

I see sun glint off your intent
That intent from afar
I stand broad not knowing fear

To late, I feel your intent
As your arrow pierces my heart
I stand broad not knowing fear
Thoughtless now, from your deadly spear

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
