Fear And Trembling
Where did you go?
I was told to follow, and so I followed,
But now it seems that I'm all alone.
Our footsteps have been washed away.
Leaving me without proof, or a path back home.
I looked away for just one moment,
Which is all it took for you to disappear.
Were you just an imaginary friend
Whom I outgrew over the years?
You had my back.
But maybe you were only
Fulfilling a maintenance request.
Because a wall was built.
It does its job, and you've done yours,
So now the carpenter has left.
Are you a social psychosis
Which we invent
In our times of need?
A necessary neurosis
In order to cope with
The imperfect lives we lead?
While I shiver as the air thins and grows colder,
I can feel your hand now resting on my shoulder.
