Befriended Fear

I’ve learned I had a friend in fear

A trusted old companion

For in the darkest night of tears

It was my heart’s medallion

 

It clung to me in loneliness

In glory, loss, and hate 

Embraced me with its illness

And told me it was fate

 

It whispered gentle promises

Pledged loyalty till death

And even after the ellipsis

It vowed to find its breath

 

long after love forsook me

And joy betrayed my soul

Fear joined me faithfully

And my forlornness stole
