Fears

Fears

Emotions run deep, truth in our eyes,
Unable to diminish or exorcize,
Demons inside of us forever in ruse,
Take over our lives, our sanity we lose.

Powerful restraints constrict us in ways,
Crushing our windpipe, our vision in haze.
Shaking and faint in the grip of our fear,
To some surreal but to you sincere!

We dwell on scenarios not yet come to pass,
We dread the day that will become our last.

We all have our burden, our hidden pain,
Dismantling our freedom, unable to explain.

For most arachnid or fear of the dark,
For some the blue abyss or forest in bark.
For me it’s the usual, I wantonly share,
Empathically gifted, entwined we all care.

I fear of losing my daughters and wife,
I fear blindness and loss of colours in life.
I fear drowning in the depths of the ocean deep,
I fear closing my eyes and never waking from sleep.

To share is to ease and support carries,
Understanding and help usually marries.
We all have secrets hidden away,
For some its hard just to live each day.

Its not you don'tΒ  worry.Β  I noticed your crumbling dream poem is vastly underrated! Makes me feel bit better in one sense, a poet of your abilities has been overlookedΒ  too! Must be certainΒ  times of day andΒ  differentΒ  styles?!

Hi Simon.Β  We all do indeed have our own demons and fears to deal with...I have some of the same fears you do....I think it is impossible in life not to have things we fear...Life is so fragile and unpredictable....but I guess it is what connects us all and makes us human...I like this theme and your thoughts.Β  xo ;)Β
