Fear

Fear

A Poem by sonnie ibadah

They told me that there was nothing to fear, but fear itself,
and yet I’m sitting here in the dark, just me and myself,
trying to hold on to the memories of what was once ours,
but even they are fading, betraying me in this lonely hour,
I try so hard to grab on to the light, but darkness is all I see,
and I know it’s not right, but I wish you were here with me,
I don’t know what I would do or what I’d say,
but I’d probably beg you to stay.
For a moment, of for the night,
although it’s wrong, it feels so right.
Even if we pretend for a moment that you’re mine,
and in that sweet moment, everything would be fine.
The pain and loneliness would disappear,
in that moment I hold you near.
I try to deny my heart what it brutally craves,
but fear is all I can have,
not fear of losing you, for that is too late,
but fear of losing memories I don’t want to forget.


They told me that there was nothing to fear, but fear itself,
and now we are
sitting here alone, fear and myself.

Very nice rythm! I like the way you tried to capture the feelings of a broken heart.
