The Definition Of Fear

Poem By Amanda Saveley

I'm afraid.

I'm afraid that each time I let you go will be the last.
I'm afraid that you'll never come back,

Whether of your own will or fate...

I'm afraid that you will not be allowed to return to me.

That you will stay forever out of my reach,
In the abyss...
If Heaven is where you are meant to go...

I'm afraid I cannot follow.
I'm afraid I will forever lose you.
I'm afraid you'll find someone else.

I'm less than you deserve.

I'm afraid that life will eventually take you from me.

For I know this to be true.

I'm afraid of hello.
I'm afraid of goodbye.
I'm afraid of your absence.



This is why I cry.

Brother, my brother,
How selfish was I
While you seemed to struggle,
I sat idly by

I Tried...

All is fair in love and war
I wish I could believe
Maybe then I'd not don a shield
Instead of my heart on my sleeve

His hands...
I watch them intently,
Waiting for what secrets they might unfold
Beneath those fingers that grip the pen

God Is Out To Lunch, Please Take A Number

I'm done hating You now.
I accept that which I cannot change
And acknowledge the self-infliction
I understand as much as I can

Is There Life After Love (After Lie) ?

Is there a life after love?
Can there be love after lies?
My entire delusion
Fed by your illusions

How Do You Stop To Smell A Rose When You Are Without A Nose?

Life is...fleeting...
Moments fly like butterflies and passing thoughts
No one considers
In this endless line of seemingly continous patterns
