Fear


Fear whispered in my ears,
like a mosquito feasting on my skin.
It whispered doubts,
 it challenged me into a battle
on the field of life.
I left fear on the sidelines of youth,
and it found me in mid life.
It entered like a burglar
on a dark night,
awakened me in my sleep
and shined a bright light 
in my eyes.
It stood over me
as my heart raced.
Fear climbed the fence
of my garden
and planted seeds
while my back was turned,
like a needle piercing my subconscious.
Fear touched my wounds,
injured my being.
It whispered,
it whispered,
then it roared.

  3. Fear can def sneak up on you, fears you thought you have left behind all of a sudden rise up again. Sometimes those seeds take a while to show themselves though their roots can run very deep.

  4. fear is a powerful intruder and it can destroy things that we built over years in no time. when fearful thoughts sneak in i have to remind myself of the truths i've learned and of the one who helps me fighting it

  5. Fear has that way of coming up on you.. and when we least expect it--- the fangs of fears are glistening.. I think we need to listen to its whispering before it roars.

  6. I really like the idea of fear climbing the fence of the garden and planting seeds. Yes, that is so often what fear does...it spreads...whispers...then roars. I like this poem very much because I can identify with it.

  7. What a great personification of fear Ayala ~ The last lines brought a chill to me as fear can definitely open wounds and injure us all over again ~

    Fear does seem to creep slowly while planting itself into our soul.
    Powerful write.

    Lots of love,

  9. Fear is such an element that it just freezes the working brain and leaves one
    in paralysis! Very true Ayala!

  12. I can really relate to this - very well brought to life, as we have all lived at some stage in our lives: "like a mosquito feasting" on our skin, our very being... After a busy summer, haven't read you for while and this was a very stimulating write... With Best Wishes Scott www.scotthastie.com

  14. Fear THE DEVIL
    THE SINNER
    The Father of all
    doubt.. envy..
    jealousy.. pride..
    anger.. collecting
    and most sadly
    of all
    THE
    Father of
    Hate..
    LOVE
    THE
    WINNER
    of ALL
    GOD..:)

  15. You had me at fear climbing that fence, as with others who loved the lines. Fear is a politician's tool as well as bullies & salesmen & abusive spouses, & it is effective. I had a gun in the house for years, but with 7 grandchildren prowling around now, we got rid of it.

  16. I could so relate to this, Ayala. At one time I felt fear everywhere I turned and it too began to roar! Excellent work.

    I can relate to them as in the niggling doubt becomes the raging fear...

  19. The imagery is surreal. I especially like this line....
    " Fear climbed the fence
    of my garden
    and planted seeds
    while my back was turned"
    A very powerful piece.
