Poem Fear

Poem Fear



A slave to destiny

Unable to stop the inevitable
Circumstances consume my energy

Fear, my only companion


Life, an uncontrollable instrument

The body does what it wants
...the realization of hopelessness taunts
Fear of the unknown presents itself


Heart pumping against the chest
the bondage of the emotions besets
Phobia about where it will lead

Complicates the feed


An escape route is desperately sought

Away from that monster of dread
A desire for peace and tranquility

In an atmosphere of frightened reality


Shyness about decisions

An oasis envisioned
...a place of forgotten timidities

Where fear stands outside its boundaries
