Lions and Tigers and Bears

Lions,
And tigers,
And bears
Danger nipped at our ankles
It tore away at my being
Adrenaline filled my veins
My vision was blurry
I grasped your hand,
"Are you scared?"
You said,
"I feel nothing"
I chased away the haunting skeleton
From your closet
I held you when lightning struck,
Sending chills down your spine
I was the kickstand
That you constantly leaned on
Let go of my hand
Don't hold me anymore
I can make it on my own
I'll lock my doors
And, I'll sleep with one eye open
If you feel nothing,then...
There is no reason to keep running
Side-by-side,
Because
After all I've done for you,
The time and tears I've spent,
When you say,
"I feel nothing"
I'm not scared of...
Lions,
And tigers,
And bears
I'm scared of...
Empty
Emotionless
You
