That unfinished

Seeming no end

Those unspoken

Which we never send


For want of courage

With fear of risk

Remains undone

Ever on that list


Never vanishes

Always just there

Out of sight

Beyond compare


Faintly haunting

An itchy burr

Mostly ignored

The mind can whirr


Let’s procrastinate

For another year

It is not urgent

I’ll keep my fear
