In Fear (poem)

in fear, we look beyond ourselves
in fear, absolute silence can settle in
in fear, texture is merely an obstacle
in fear, olfactory can be a distraction
in fear, flavors can turn rancid

in love, we look towards ourselves
in love, sounds resonate in laughter
in love, to feel is to express
in love, fragrance becomes indicative
in love, sweet and sour are the same

it’s still not too difficult to change your mind.
