Fear Struck Eyes

I woke today with no fear in my eyes,
I woke up happy,
But still no smile,
I'm not that lucky,
I forgot my pain for a breaf second and felt joy,
Not the joy you jump up and down for but the joy you search for each day,
My chest didn't hurt when i saw the pictures,
My heart didn't ack like it always did,
I didn't feel frightend when I passed the one place that frightens me,
I didn't let myself go in the awarness of your disappearenss
I didn't let fear run my life today,
But we no I'm not lucky enough to get a free day,
Everything has its price,
No fear for...
Tomorrow is a new day,
And new days bring all new pain,
And a whole new pair of fear struck eyes

    This poem of yours to me had a particular lure to me like I was the fish and the poem was the fisherman luring me in :)
    Indeed fear can make things go faster- heartbeats, and especially the panic that propels your feet to move at enormous speeds. Thanks for sharing :)

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
