A Cowards Torment

A Cowards Torment

A Poem by The Dreamer
"

we often shrink away and lack the courage to face many adverse situations in our life...

"



Its knocking at my door,

I am sitting still inside:

Having bolted it tight.

My body, in flames

A fire so cold, I am trembling,

Slowly going numb - I freeze.

 

A terrible creature, clawing inside me,

Oozing out its venom, into every vein.

Tearing my flesh gradually,

With its deadly fangs.

A beast called 'Fear' is what it is:

Devouring me from within.

 

Frozen - unable to move,

I am huddled in a corner.

Hand over my ears,

Trying to tune out,

That persistent knocking.

Hoping that what awaits me,

Would leave sooner or later,

Under the presumption:

There is no one within…..

Author's Note

The Dreamer
we often shrink away and lack the courage to face many adverse situations in our life. i wrote this in such a situation, i waited for the problem to vanish or break through the door of cowardice. i was bound by fear, i wasn't ready to take action..

See, now this poem free associates and has a more free form prose. It seems to flow, even without rhyme. It speaks straight to that need to overcome, to feel that you'll be lost in your own desperation. It evokes that feeling of drowning in our own fear and helplessness, that feeling we all deal with sometimes. I like it very much.

It happens to all of us.That is the phase where we learn to be strong, now you must be a stronger person I guess.

Nicely expressed poem, as usual! :)

So true, how fear of a situation build up inside until rational thought need not apply; excellent!
