What To Fear?

What To Fear?

A Poem by A Risen Heroine.



Let me walk by

Pretend I did not see it

Not feel it

Trying to see right through it

It's nothing more than air

The known are what I fear

It's closing in on me

Where to hide?

It’ll take a grip of me soon

So many fears

So many scars

No reconciliation

Nothing more than a fear for life

This time I won’t let it stab me

Sneaking up on me from behind

Pushes me down on my knees

Makes me swallow the juices

Trying to run as fast as my lungs allow me

Heart skipping a beat every each time;

I see you walk by

Family and friends accepts it

Need it as much as air

Except for me

I run for my life

Don't want it to take over me 

Yet falling behind

I can't escape this

I don't want it to harm me once more.

Love is what I run from.

most people do - run hard and fast, away from feeling. Being hurt is not an acceptable risk - especially when its all u seem to ever get.

Take care,

This is so sad. A sad, sad piece. I think we've all had something we want to run from at some point in our lives.
Good work.

So very sad and touching. Fear can make us do strange things. Well done.

this is nice
but i think that you should always face your fears although im afraid of love but i face it and i failed but i think that the moment that makes you strong is the moment when you stand up again ..
and you should not run from anything because it will face you one day , sooner or later you will see it infront and in that day you will tauch this glass and you will realize that i was cold ..no hot ..

Great work :)

Those who are weak to accept love are the ones that never get the chance to experience it and are the ones left to question. It sometimes hurts to face the reality since it isn't kind words and blissful touches but the consequences later. Great job on this poem especially with the final line bringing the reader to know what you're talking about.
