now has no fears

Henri Matisse, Nu Bleu, 1952

your fears are not here


the last time you met them

they told you

on your knees

and you were

but then the fire

in your chest

started to burn

so fast

the lion in your breath

started to roar

no rest

and you rose

from your ashes

you left them


in that moment

you knew

now has no fears

“If I close my eyes, I see things better than with my eyes open.” Henri Matisse
