Fear


Fear
Fear wraps you up but doesn't comfort you.
Fear makes you feel sick and bring up what you shouldn't really say.
Fear is heavy and holds you back.
Fear is dark but can sometimes help shed light on something.
Fear is poisonous but not spiteful.
Fear is silent but deadly.
Fear is forbidding.
Fear is creative and makes you act in a way you wouldn't normally.
Fear is powerful but makes you feel weak at the knees.
Fear seeps through the cracks that you try and hide.

    Fear is usually your imagination of sinister things playing tricks in your mind, it has no substance, thanks why on standing up to fear we usually find it inconsequential. A lovely poem, well articulated and penned with insight. A nice piece indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    If you surrender your hope to a fear you will lose it, if you give it to spirit it will double it_Soul (Report) Reply

    i like the way you played the comparisons a little further.
    the observational stance gives the poem a slight chill to the reader.
    tis not bad methinks (Report) Reply
