This poem is amazing. I share a lot in common with this blogger, but he has put into words EXACTLY what my own fear feels like in a much better poem than I could ever write. If you want to “Like’ it please please put your “Like” on his blog, not mine. I hope you like this poem as much as I do.
Don’t want to acknowledge it
But it’s there, that’s for sure
A piss – yellow streak of cowardice
And a lump that chokes your throat raw
So scared I could vomit up an organ
A whole stomach or a liver
Anything to compose the knees
Or disguise a shameful quiver
Butterflies rattling round my insides
Like adrenalin – filled syringes with wings
Shredded from their cocoons
Embedded in tombs like foolish kings
The comfort of possessions
The terror of paralysis
Yes I am afraid
Does your fear feel like this?
