World I Fear

​”World I Fear”

I have lain here,
feeling the darkness surround me,
closing in tighter and tighter
until it’s hard to move.

Immobile this flesh,
this close to spirit,
is it but a dream,
before the sleep?

Consciousness cries,
fingers twitch,
and I’m so afraid
To be trapped forever.

Paralyzed, 
Unseeing,
halfway ‘tween death,
and the world I fear.
