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

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
