Fears Poem by Mihaela Pirjol


Rating: 4.0

Fears in heart, fears in mind,
For them reason I can't find;
Fears in love, and of unknown,
Of the wind and what may blow:
Sleepless nights covered in worry:
For myself, I feel so sorry!

Random thoughts, irrational,
Chase my mind—exhaustible;
Some of them with no substance,
In some other, I feel the absence
Of someone with whom to share
This aching fear: —it's so unfair!

A warm embrace, a gentle touch,
To mine heart would mean so much,
To reassure and wash fears away,
Leaving place for a brighter day;
Yet, my pillow only knows my fears:
In secret silence, absorbing tears…

Fear is a bunch of sinister shadows, a shadow has no substance, it's usually only a magnified reflection of something small. That's why in standing boldly up to fear you often find it inconsequential. I like the articulation and insight of the poem. Thanks for sharing and merry Christmas. Please read my poem MZANSI AND THE BALLOT BOX.

I remember last February when this was the Poem Of The Day, I sent you a congratulations message and it didn't deliver! Nor did my comment on the poem. But PH seems to have fixed the system. Hurray! // This poem is so probing - it uncovers so many dimensions of heartbreak - and almost in the middle is the heart's eternal lament: IT'S SO UNFAIR. But there no tribunal to hear the case of a broken heart and restore justice. We are bereft. And your poem clearly understands this and yet will not be silent.

I enjoyed your poem about fears and loneliness. Your expression of desire for human connection to 'assure and wash fears away' is a lovely sentiment. Thanks for sharing. Peace.

Profound poetry. " I feel the absence /Of someone with whom to share /This aching fear: —it's so unfair! ". How do I express my hearts reverberations on reading these lines.
