Emerging from the anxiety that stalks the deepest darkness,
beginning to trust again the sense that points towards the day.
Learning how to keep the prowling tigers at a distance
whose stare has paralysed, saliva-ed teeth waiting to feast.
This precarious hinterland between sanity and madness
Just takes a well aimed hit from an assassins cyanide dipped tirade
to unbalance the fragile psyche, and as the cracks corrode integrity ,
the mind is gripped in terror of falling into the bottomless abyss .
But hold gently now, and allow the fears to walk away unhindered
and hope the shadow of their departing reveal that, which what once was you.
