life terrors

The Boy was frozen in terror. 

He had fallen. 

In that second all he knew was that he had fallen, like his Daddy, and he wondered if he too would be gone in an instant.

Seconds passed and the terror began to ebb, yet he remained perfectly still, waiting. 
....
There was a time I wasn't afraid of anything. After losing him I became terrified of everything. 

Years passed and as the terror begins to ebb, I remain perfectly still, waiting.
