Anticipation of Fear of Melting Life Lines

There is walking around with fear –
Logical fear where odds tell you
there are things to be done
to your psyche, to your flow.

You aren’t conscious, mostly,
but you rely on a smooth,
comfortable sense of self.
It is the one strand holding
up the netting of your goodness.

The ones you love most
will melt with greatest
velocity that last strand
with flame-

And you will wish you didn’t
take them seriously, wish
you didn’t consider
them real,
but you have no shield,
no sense of well-being.

    “Logical fear ” I think there certainly is such a thing. The rub is how to tell the difference between the illogical ones.

      Yes – It might feel healthy to have NO FEAR, but it’s quite dangerous.
