Living in fear when you think that its love, breaking the chain is a hard thing to do, hear are my own thoughts of FEAR AND LOVE


I want to leave, but fear holds me here,
You beat me, kick me, I want to leave,
I loved you once, or was it the fear,
You marry your Fathers so I hear,
My Dad beat me, kick me, tried many a time to throttle me too,
It’s driving me mad I want to leave you,
The fear, the tears, all built up inside,
Many a time I hide and cried,
If I leave will you seek me out?
Make my life hell for that’s what it’s not about,
I long to be loved, cared for and hugged,
No more beatings someone with patience and love
The fear is great, greater than love
I need to find strength
Find that special person too!
Melt away the fear, I feel from you,
So I can LOVE, in the Normal way,
Not in fear or dread everyday,
Please I beg you Love me today

And take me AWAY.

Nice poem. Great use of structure and rhyme, the highly controlled rhyme pattern works very well in this piece but maybe you should try branching out to a freer form? Just a suggestion.

Your right often fear overides love. But i hope you gain the courage to leave the bastard whom this poem is about, if you havent already done so, and find someone who treats you decently.

Keep up the great work.

I have known this kind of desperation...many years ago with my first husband (before I met the love of my life)and the fear that drives it's very core...I was one of the lucky ones...I got free...you have captured the feeling of desperation in this work...I pray it will serve to free others who are bound by this fear...

I have broken free from this as well but feel i had to write about Fear as so many women live in it and it is difficult to break free as there is nothing worse than living in it i thankyou for your kind comments god bless Juliet
