Fear

A trembling as a feather in a breeze,
Proclaims the presence of a force
From deepest earth. From far away.

The calm will go, the force, approaching
With a heavy tread, will shake the walls.
The fear has taken over me.

You can not stop a stream
That lost all reason. You can not hide
A knowing, when you see that all is lost.

  1. Oh Ina, this is so, so sad, and yet you have a unique way of expressing such sadness beautifully. ❤️ Xxx

  2. Well if its not the last it’s not. They are what they are and so universally written that many people will feel them in a deep place, Im sure of it 😊❤️ Xx

  3. There is sadness, and poetry is the vessel to hold it.

  4. This is much stronger than “sad”, to me, Ina. You’ve captured deep grief, which feels exactly like FEAR.
