Fear and I

Fear and I

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 by myself.

Trying to hold on to the memories of what was once ours,

but even they are betraying me in this lonely hour. 

I try 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 know I’d probably beg you to stay.

Just for a moment, or just for the night,

although it’s wrong, it still feels so right.

For a while we'll pretend that you are mine,

And with your sweet smile, everything will be fine.

The pain and loneliness will disappear,

in the moment when I hold you near.

I've tried to deny my heart what it brutally craves,

but if i'm being honest, fear is all I 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, just fear and myself.

Feel the fear and your troubles will all subside.
But the ultimate fear was double-edged.
Like the way you write.
