Fear| Spoken Word Poetry

You are my worst nightmare.

always by my side

with a smile that gives me chills

I don’t want you in my head

go away, fear!

You say you’re my only friend

yet you mistreat me,

emotionally drain me

I wanted to do that; join the writing competition

but you said I wasn’t good enough

I didn’t believe you

I decided to go ahead,

give it a try!

But I could feel you

squeezing me tightly

on my neck, against the wall

I couldn’t breathe!

my eyes glistened with tears as I slid down the wall

hope lost.

It happened again!

I made a crazy decision

cause all you do is hold me back …


Over To You …

What’s the one thing you hate about fear?

Thank you for reading. New post every Tuesday and Friday.

With Love,

Jade J
