You told me you had faced your fear
and made it disappear
a year ago and more
when a dark night of the soul
came knocking on your door

yet now it seems you'd only then
began to be aware
of all the fear
your life is based upon

You felt it once
and thought that ne'er again
would fear rear its ugly head
inside of you
but nothing bold or new
ever came of your discovery

and fear transcended always leads
to changes so incredible
that all will note the new affect
but still your fear begets
the same old things

as you wonder where
your dreams have gone
and why the love
you searched so long to find
has disappeared
