the thickness of experience is dissipating
mind headed out in less-afraid directions
in search of
extinguishing the untouched
a flamed unknown winks in the distance
and I am ready.
Shove my comforts into my boots,
leave the upholstery behind
along with the rest of my doubts,
with each step forward
the fears fray into revealing themselves
The sound of anxious nail-biting
chatters into the past.
