This fear sits in my belly
And boils
Turning my lunch upside
Down and inside out

It blocks my eyes so
I can only see it
Like a jilted lover
Or an old friend

And I long to be rid
Of this pain ; this
Poisonous feeling of fear
That hovers.

But there is no escaping
My gut of what it knows-
I am not good enough
For peace
