agoraphobia--stephen richard eng

Agoraphobia

No walls! Naked space 
And panic born of openness, 
Where we confront love’s dread expanse.
 
Beware! Terror-place 
Of freedom where our hearts undress, 
And too much candor kills Romance.
 
Retreat! Go—retrace 
Our trail and trek where fear is less, 
And sentiment (old-fashioned) has a chance.

these words written by my father, stephen
i was raised to be this way . . .
bookish and shy and sensitive
