Treasure Island

Payal Parande



I am afraid, afraid that I'll disappear
Afraid that no one will hear me
Hear me when I am screaming, screaming for help
I am afraid I'll won't be able to shout
Afraid, no one will come
Come When someone will rip my heart out

I am afraid, afraid I am trapped
Trapped inside a cell
I am banging hard, banging hard on the wall
One thing on my mind I have to fight
I have to yell it all out
i Know.., know no one would hear me
But my mind won't let me stop

I am afraid, afraid I'll hate
Hate everything I have
Afraid there will be no love
No love for me
Even though If there is some
I am afraid, afraid I won't be
Able to see

I am trembling, trembling fast
But there is no place to fall
Place to Fall Down
How am I suppose to
Embrace, embrace this life of
And be it’s lonely clown.

    Everyone at one time has had an intense fear of something. We just have
    to realize that in order to overcome it we have to more or less go through
    it. Fear can hinder us in being the kind of person that we want to be in life.
    There is a light at the end of every tunnel. Please read my poem Top of
    the Mountain. Enjoyed this very inspiring write. Nice details. (Report) Reply

    dear payal, this is an excellent write.. I feel for the people in this situation
    of being helpless and no one comes to their rescue.. if only they could
    shout out what they needed or speak out against injustices..and if only
    the person who hears, knew exactly what to do to help..a fabulous poem! (Report) Reply

    I'm afraid, afraid to read
    To read this poem I see
    Cos I'm scared to know
    That you've been imprisoned so
    All alone, shouting for help
    But no one heard, no one knew
    I won't believe it's true...
    Hahaha..nice poem Payal (Report) Reply

    A very powerful poem, we all must be afraid at some point
    in our lives, it makes us think of our actions and other peoples
    actions, to never be afraid would make us not have proper
    feelings. A really fantastic poem. (Report) Reply

    the tremble of our youth
    and all of it's alloted fears
    will be replaced like a wisdom tooth
    in life's golden years (Report) Reply

    Dear Payal, I have had this very fear myself but you described it in a way I never could. Thank you for this and for
    making me realize that I am not alone in feeling this fear.This is another great write! I truly admire your talent.

    Hugs and Love,

    The clowns in dramas, films and in real life make others laugh but weep within. You have put yourself in the place of a lonely clown. When somebody rips your heart, you scream for help not saying the reason. So no one come to heal your wound or hear your cries. Repetition of words, phrases... make your lines musical. For chorus singing, your lines are apt and give the wonderful magic of mesmerising effect. (Report) Reply

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
