Deepest Fears - Poem by Naina Elizabeth Sebastian

Haunted by the ghost of the past
I crawl away fast
Worried and scared
My vision blurred
Searching for hope
Unable to cope
With those stinging scars
Which hold me hostage in bars

A void in my heart
which breaks me apart
Forcing myself to make my face nonchalant
Akin to a gallant

I have to move on
Since life is a game on

Topic(s) of this poem: alone, sadness

Form: Sonnet
