“Boundary of Fear”
by Liz Bennefeld
A boundary of fear encompasses my life,
protects my trembling heart and shaking hands
from reaching out to you for reassurance. . . .

Note: At one time I participated in a low-volume mailing list owned by Loretta Kemsley, for Women Artists and Writers International. I wrote “Boundary of Fear” in response to a writing prompt that was published to the list.
