The Living Fear

The Living Fear

A Poem by Devyani

'Happiness elusive like the battles left unfought
Charisma that washed away in the silent fears
Ignorant as the dust in the shining rays
Drops in the ocean like rainfall in the dark.

True were the lies left unexplained
Best of you was good enough in the end
Like darkness that conquered the bright
Sowing the fruitless harvest in the rancor.

Insightful as the listener unwilling
Keeping the monotony at arm's length
Becoming the past all over again
Hoping for change to alter all that was left.'

Hehe, fears are all conquered by ignorance. Its best to not over think. This poem somewhat confuses me but maybe its because i cant relate to this. But if it was you who wrote this then your quite the writer :)

A sometimes overwhelming anxiety of all things pertaining to Life and its errant ways.

Quite vague yet incredibly vivid simultaneously.

Nice job!

Hmm... It is really nice one! specially i like the lines:
True were the lies left unexplained
Best of you was good enough in the end
Like darkness that conquered the bright
Sowing the fruitless harvest in the rancor.

Anyway it is nice that you kept poem small. Small and timely usage are powerful! Bravo! Keep it up!

This probably has been said in previous reviews. This poem speaks to me about loving someone, but them not so much in return. Leaving you to remember the best of that individual, wishing that individual back off cherished memories. "The best of you was good enough in the end" How we deeply feel about someone often doesn't reflect back, to love someone for all they are even with their mistakes.

I like this, it deffenatley has feeling behind it, so I'm able to know exactly what you're talking about. All in all, a great poem.

Good to read your words again. I missed your poetry and thoughts. I hope all is well with you. Poem is very strong. We could have a deep and long discussion with the many strong statements.
"True were the lies left unexplained
Best of you was good enough in the end"
Better to be honest and do our best. Life is long and we need to like who we are. Thank you for the amazing poem.
