i used to be afraid of many things invisible irrational and unexplained this fear would paralyse me to my fingertips till i could barely breathe making my way i found myself a weapon then resembling a little secret spell invisible irrational unverified protecting from my sneaky monsters still

i’d sing i’d sing myself to calm to trust that some impenetrable aura grew tight around me kept from being injured by all the things escaping sombre soul and those were not just songs but volumes volumes

then i grew up and i would sing each time i fell in love my voice would never tremble like before and melodies would flow like liquid gold

a funny thing to notice though i almost never seem to finish the briefest of the  songs
