You Are Afraid Without Fear You Will Be Left Alone - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What is it that you are trying to protect?
An isolation that is no secret?
A communication done you do with no one?
Or is it just fear,
Inside of you too close that comforts!

And you've become afraid,
Your victimized anguish...
Might discover you too willing a companion.
And this revelation,
You dare not to share with anyone.

You are afraid without fear you will be left alone.
And no one will come to value you without it!
