And in the water I could see
a piece of what you broke in me.

I took a walk my usual way.
I called to quit my job today.

And in these wholly empty hours
when my quiet thoughts get louder—

saying you were born to be this way
(you were made to be afraid)


Sometimes my heart and brain conspire
to set everything afire

just to stop the tyranny
of that minute hand on me.

We woke for golden morning hours
just to soak in all the power;

we were made to be this way
(we were made to be afraid)
