Treasure Island

Birgitta Heikka


This Fear …


That won’t disappear
Heightening my despair
Illumining phantoms in the midnight air
Scorching flame in the atmosphere

Frightening, engulfing fear
Erupting, corrosive in the air
Attacking, inflaming fear
Reminiscing of dark-age despair.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written shortly after 911 when a special kind of fear permeated the air and innocent people were branded with unwarranted labels and cataloged.

    Strong and very vivid lines excellently conveying the pangs and traps of fear. Only one who has been there can write so well about what fear is. Superb! (Report) Reply

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
