A Toast to Fear

A Toast to Fear

by Elizabeth Challinor

Words

Hopeless

Images

Maybe

A cauldron

Of emotions

Brewing in rhe dark

Light

No 

Go away 

You dont have a place 

You are not always the solution

Let darkness thicken

Cobwebs spread

Spiders crawl

Shadows dance

Confusion intensify

Certainties dissolve

And then 

Only then

When the attic 

Of the soul

Has spewed out 

The unthinkable

Is it time

To smile

And speak your truth
