Fear - Poem by Tiana Webb

Shadows in the dark
They're keeping me awake
So I sleep with the light on
Please lock the door behind you
And bolt the windows tight
Silence can be deadly
Especially at night
You scare me half to death
Making me bolt down the stairs
I'm so scared
But of course no one cares
Noises stir at night
Making me jump right out of bed
I run down the stairs
Everyone is dead
I wake up from this nightmare
Screaming and drenched in cold sweat
Fearing you and everything
Is my one and only regret

    Fear is a bunch of sinister shadows. A shadow has no substance, it's only a magnified reflection of something small, that's why in facing fear squarely we usually find it inconsequential. A lovely piece of poetry, well articulated and insightfully penned with conviction. A beautiful poem indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    The final two lines make me curious - Who is the *you* whom the poet fears? This one word sends my mind into back-story, conjuring reasons for the poet's nightmares. (Report) Reply
