Afraid

You give me answers
to questions I never
thought to ask,
unprompted
and so thoughtfully.

I love you.
It won’t
save you
or fix it
or make
anything
better.

Just don’t be
afraid to need me.
That’s why
she sent me.
That’s why
I’m here.

I am afraid of
so many things.
But I am not
afraid of you.

A week in the pending queue is a long enough simmer, I’d say.
