Fear's Defeat

by Aleta Gantt
(Yakima, WA)

Step out of fear's embrace
How it has seduced you
With the darkness of its solitude
And keeps you hidden from me
The strength of its intricate knots
Binding your love
And we remain stagnant
As its stench permeates the possibilities
Turn away from its carnal gaze
And find me


Take my hand
A moment of risk sublime
Trusting in all that we are
And I will hold you safely there
Where we will know no fear.
