stillness speaking to me

stillness speaks
but it frightens me
it whispers through the darkness
taunts me
overpowers me

stillness leaves me vulnerable

fight squirm resist
insist
you are in control
console
demons
relax loosen let go
show
faith
trust inspire accept
inept
perfection

embrace?

but what if stillness reminds you of death
rather than liberating realms of your life

what if stillness embodies your greatest fears and wicked desires
rather than lifting you somewhere peaceful

stillness leaves me vulnerable

does that justify running away?
admitting defeat
refusing to stay
and risk becoming complete
eyes closed to play
with fire

try
be brave
risk
be safe
lean
be held
smile
be thawed
love
be desired
want
be fulfilled

stillness speaks
of what?
wait –
listen…
