Afraid

You lay beside me

in the hours I do not rest,

you wake to make my coffee

even warming the mug;

what drives the part that offends

so easily when my thoughts drift;

my imperfection undisguised,

look me in the eye

like you did the day we met,

tell me why you’re afraid;

is my art not good,

or too good?
