Fears - Poem by Mihaela Pirjol

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…

Topic(s) of this poem: longing, worries, loneliness, despair, fears, heartache

Form: Sestet

    Fear well explained, the cure to this I agree would be love; A warm embrace, a gentle touch... (Report)Reply

    Fear is such a confusing human nature. It creeps and clings even in the oddest moments in human existence. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on fears dear poet. (Report)Reply

    While reading this poem I am reminded of Edvard Munch famous painting 'The Scream.' Humans (and for that matter animals too) are born with the innate feeling of fear which manifests in us through logical and illogical thoughts and at other times for reasons quite inexplicable. This is truly an enchanting poem and can be a rich tribute the the great painting 'The Scream.' (Report)Reply

    A great poem about the intricacies of human mind and its unwanted wanderings without reason. The poem exactly narrates the situation in apt words and it is a fine one. (Report)Reply

    He who loves knows no fears
    Doubt in love always tears
    True love is ever full of cheers
    Love is the boat that steer clear

    A great poem.Take into notice that I do not find a word generous for poems not deserving the character of a real poem.
    And this is a real poem.In a poetical ton like painting a feeling in a canvas.

    For them reason I can't find;
