I crawled down under in the night
To escape the fear of day
And made my home within a hell
And thought I might just have to stay.

I stayed down under far too long
Until I heard your voice above
And peered outside to see your face
But I am so afraid of love.

Let the sun which sees me now
Have me in the worst of times
So that I may see the best
And burn and burn and burn.

    1. I don’t know that I have ever heard that before. Perhaps I’ll have to read them both again. I read Dickinson quite a lot when I was younger and Milay hardly at all. Have a wonderful day and thank you for taking the time to comment. Cheers.
