untitled 01/03/09

Part of me

Has

Developed this

Paranoid fear

Of things

Falling apart

As soon as they

Begin

To feel right

And I begin to

Relax

A little.

It isn’t like the fear is unjustified

In some

Regards.

The track record

Of broken dreams

And broken relationships

And busted marriages

Warrants fear-

If not

A complete surrender

Of hope.

Yet,

Scarred

And scared,

With remaining bruises,

I find a way

To allow the paranoia

Of hope

Back into my life.

With each kiss

Or clasping of hands,

The fear

Creeps in

And my Pisces heart

Wants

To run crying

For the exits,

But my feet stay

Planted

And ready

To try again

Just one more time.

That Piscean hope is never dead,

The wistful dreaminess

Of romance

And delirious emotions,

Always

Just below

The scales.
