Unknown Fear


Unknown fear,
Is hovering my heart.
Fear of love and hatred.
Fear of victory and failure.

I can not guess it
Accurately I mean
May be one of those…
But I m too keen.

What it is about?
Why it gives me chills?
It is really dreadful,
As my soul it kills.

Might old memories
Are affecting my present,
I tried to erase
But for permanent it went,
Went deep inside…

But it bumps out,
Sometimes unexpectedly.
Withers my soul,
And rock me as whole.

At this moment,
I want a companion.
Who can comfort me,
But I found none.

Alone confronting fear,
I sometimes cry,
Hoping someone will hear.
But I find- fear, fear only fear…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
