It’s a Thrill to be Afraid

It’s a thrill
to be afraid --

to discover
you’ve mislaid
your last capacity
for sense, and care --

to fall into the dense
exasperation of despair –
knowing there’ll be
nothing at the end --

that there’d been
nothing to begin with --
that sin lives at the core –
and there isn’t any more –

besides a fairy tale
whose moral is:
you’re dead
before you die –

it’s a thrill
to tell that lie.
