Ana Lia Zaldivar

(March 1,1994 / Honduras)


Fear loses when I am close to you,
when I forget about what is loneliness,
but lately you are the one I fear,
now the world is my nightmare.

I've lost the one who protected me,
from all the fear which could rule in me,
now I am exposed,
to my nightmare every night, and everyday.

I fear what you've done to me,
I fear that's true,
that it's not just a nightmare,
that's just my reality.

I fear for it to happen again,
I fear the pain that have grown in my heart,
I fear for it to get worst,
I fear for it to take me to an end.

I fear not to have you one more time,
for our dreams to disappear for once and for all,
I fear for what's happening now,
and I fear it's not just a nightmare.

    Great poem! I do believe that 'lonelyness, ' should be spelled, 'loneliness'.

    Yes-My spell checker has confirmed it. Always happy to help!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
