Perhaps it's

The frightening possibility

that if no one reads your writing

then the words become

nothing.

the ideas are

destroyed.

thousands and thousands of

stories

poems 

prose

that might as well 

burn in a fire

useless and undesirable.

be humbled I have found favor

in you.

you give my words life.

you fight off Death

from taking my ideas and stories away.

please

don't let my muse

turn into dust.
