Lizard Eye

Fear is the jailor

Wandering through the haunted citadels of your mind

Rattling his bunch of keys

Taking refuge there

Binding you tightly in hollowed out places

Where you were left alone

Drenched in chemicals that overpowered

Your young body

Chemicals become a potent cocktail of confusion

Desires and reactions and haunting imaginings

All mixed together

Hard to separate

Pooling and drowning your life

Growing larger through critical absence

Flooding you like an ocean

That obliterates consciousness

Lack of containment


Moments in which consciousness

Was totally overpowered

Left you feeling so unsafe

So insubstantial

In the face of life

Fear is also your inner protector

The one that says if you wander too far

Outside the perimeter

Limited and circumscribed

By narrow society or family

You will be alone

Vulnerable to death, attack, starvation or illness

Very real experiences or memories

Rising up from flooding banks

Of limbic brain

Deeper ancestral subconsciousness

Awaken soul

To the voices and vibrations and thoughts

Of the terrorist within

Who wants to keep you locked up

Buttoned down

Bound tight

Safe from harm

Running his ceaseless litany

Of terrifying scenarios

Take care of your heart

By all means

But do not allow the terrorist of fear

To kill off

All the life, joy, hope, freedom

And spontenaiety

Your soul contains

These wonderous chaoses

Fear will never understand

And make the jailor

Quake with dread
