Afraid of Fear Itself


Left alone
Afraid of fear itself
Grief that washed over me
Like a tidal wave of epic proportions.
I cried at night
Wishing and waiting
For something that would never come.
You left me alone
Afraid of fear itself.
What can you say to me now?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
