I’m Terrified, Terrified, Terrified - Poem by Daniel Richards

Why am I feeling\living scared all the time
It’s filling all the tired open spaces of my mind
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

Why can’t I reach the other side of the road?
I’m young but its making me grow old
I’m lost, lost lost alone

I’ve struggled through and survived
But why is my mind so blind and loosing time
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

I can’t find the dreams I lost along the line
In my heart a perfected fear resides
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

The world seemingly humours me
I do to me what seems to be a tragedy
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

Life is like an ocean oh so wide
And I’m the waves slipping from the shore oh why
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

Anxiety rises like a tidal wave
Where can I find cover to hide when?
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

I run I run I run but to be lost left far behind
Depression creeps in I thought I beat it within
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

I feel pulled from pillar too post by fear
The perfected fear uses me like a host
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

Why am I feeling\living scared all the time
It’s filling all the tired open spaces of my mind
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

I can’t understand it, I can’t stand it
Its eating me alive, I need a rope to climb but
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

My soul feels stolen from its home
Without it How do I survive, I need to survive but,
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

Why am I feeling\living scared all the time
It’s filling all the tired open spaces of my mind
I’m terrified, terrified, terrified

    'I can’t find the dreams I lost along the line
    In my heart a perfected fear resides..
    The world seemingly humours me
    I do to me what seems to be a tragedy
    I’m terrified, terrified, terrified '
    These lines seem to speak to me a strange familiarity!
    Your poem is expressive and beautiful! :) 10
