“Passion Not Spent” by Caleb Madrigal

What’s my great fear?
I’ll tell you; come near…
To lay down in death
with so much left.

Passion not spent –
Oh cowardly regret!
For fear of others?
The thousand deaths.

I’m afraid to die
With no twinkle in my eye –
To pass meagerly by
Yet hidden inside.

To walk through life
Not truly alive,
And to pass in the night
With an unfelt “goodbye”.
