In your fear 

You ignore her words given in honesty 

Fear prevents a good reply 

She asks questions because she’s interested in you 

Cares about your world 

Yet all you do is choke back fear 

She’s different you hiss,  keep away 

What is it that terrifies you so much?  

That’s she embraces new and change with a smile 

Any fear she has tucked deep inside till it’s melted 

Until strange becomes normal 

Still you shun her 

Afraid talking too much is making you think about life 

What you don’t want or more scarily 

Exactly what you do? 

Her thoughts mean your thoughts exchange 

And that would never do 

Because if she doesn’t live in fear of being her 

Then maybe neither do you 

But shun her if it’s easier and live in your fear 

Now she’s escaped the bars you embrace 

Saying I’ll never leave here
