Summary

I was reading and found an interesting tidbit on fear and how it stifles growth...then this popped out. I suppose it was easy for me to write about since I had been through the shadows of fear; I know the feelings that accompany such frights intimately.

The Voice of Fear

I delude you.

A fervent tremor of the mind

May cause your heart to skip a beat,

And just maybe

You will only see darkness fall over your eyes.

~

I keep you in corners.

Sit there and think about what you did,

and regret trying to free yourself from my grasp;

Trappings of growth and luster,

I block out and despise--

Desperation is your sentence,

And upon your will,

I choose to dine.

~

You will never see my face.

Every mirror will only show the marrs of time,

and the pervasiveness of memory.

~

I am the shadow on your back.

Your shoulders feel heavy,

And your chest is tight;

I hold the strings of your mind,

And use them to pull your body taught.

~

I steal your expression.

Every time the pen bleeds to express an idea,

I am there to berate you,

And question if it's good enough.

~

I am always hungry.

Your suffering and anxieties feed me,

Your doubt completes me,

And your wounds nurture my design.

~

I am the lowly captor.

I am the architect of the stagnation

Of hearts--

I am fear.
