The Journal of Emily Davidson

his fear
03/25/2014 07:54 p.m.
though time has passed, it's not hard to remember
his fear

his spineless soul like jello
a coward dressed as a king

to him, every word i spoke
was a critique
every touch
an attack

a struggling student
blaming the teacher
he didn't deserve

there was no amount of love
i could give
to make him brave
commitment, stability, devotion
all fell flat

but with her
he tries again—
she seems scared too

i cannot help
that i am fearless
i hope every time
he kisses her
he feels strong
