Fear's Defense

Sick patterns of relationship
evolve into disease
and fear invades
a heart once free
to love within eternity

Is it not time to mend
the ills that you defend
so ceaselessly?

When you share fear
that fear will grow
endless now
the tendrils seeking
entrance to a heart

yet love is here
beyond the fear
of shattering defense

and love's divinity resides
just on the other side
of fear's defense
