Fear short poem

I fear this fear
The fear of the unseen, untold
It gnaws my insides
Disturbing my soul
Filling me with distress

This fear has been a constant
Racking through my nerves
Shaking me up
Rendering me hopeless

I live under this shadow
The shadow of fear
That is unseen, untold
Of losing my precious

But I shall not
Go down without fighting
Conquer my fear, my plight
For my precious one
I shall stand tall for thee

A starkly honest piece of writing @bhargavi which is so true, most times the demons that haunt us are the unseen fears within us..ends with just the right positive note too of overcoming it all and standing tall. Nice!

White Fear

White Fear short poem

Poetry wound and a large schism starts an invasion. Numbness pours out. You become nobody; depart without a farewell. A crazy word is lost and a delirious search is initiated. Bit by bit coexistence is found between the sheets. Unwrap
