519 – Fear

Huge warrior
Rattling his weapons,
Steps close to my face
And snarls.

I take a step back
And mindfully bow.

I take two steps back,
He’s no longer huge.

I take three steps back,
His weapons are rusty.

I take four steps back,
His voice was my own voice.

I calmly step forward.
He’s gone.
