just read..the first ever poem I published here..
This poem is entitled Repulsion and I wrote it because I have Algophobia (the exaggerated fear of pain). And that's why repulsion takes over me.


by: missraine

Time by time I hide

To shadows over aversion

Longing to subside

My hopeless situation

I tried to be blind

And swear not to perceive anymore

I tried to be deaf

And swear not to heed the rumor

I tried numbness

I'm insisting, but does not exist

I still suffer through my weakness

This feeling still persists

I can't fight, but I know I will win

Just to overcome this trepidation

Even it falls on ruin

Just to get over my repulsion

Yes, you can certainly write, better than most on here and as good as those of us who feel we can also write. Never heard of your phobia before - and I know of quite a few - does this include emotional pain? or is just physical? If it is all pain perhaps this explains your lack of self-belief? I think if you post a few more poems like this on here the support you will have will erode your doubts. Well done, it must have taken quite a lot of bravery to post at all knowing your condition: respect!

I left speechless and my mouth still open while reading your comment. Haha! yes, I fear both physical and emotional pains. yeah, it's kinda weird. One of my teacher in highschool noticed that I fear being rejected and it's almost true. And you're right, I also feel discouraged always. So now, I'm taking steps to face and overcome it 'cause it gives so much disadvantages on me.

Thank you so much for commenting here and leaving these words of wisdom. =) You don't have an idea how much you inspired me with your advices.

Another gargantuan thank you for appreciating my poem. ^_^
