UntitledFear trickles through my soul,Untitled7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My eyes bleed clear droplets of guilt.
I scream so loud but it falls on empty ears, or bitter deceit.
Whichever way of this, my hunger for deliverance outweighs my patience
Frustration grows, I clench my fist and seek to put it through a worthy face.
All around confusion puffs a cloud of smoke,
Nostalgia drags my heart away to moments lost and back to guilt.
I open my eyes, now cracked and shattered,
I stare at myself; my soul has gone dark
*A sparkle flickers, a distant star in a galaxy of black,
That star reflects the beginning of me, its you in me; beautiful me.*
My knuckles turn pink,
I open my hand to reach inside, to touch your face.
Breathe on me and drown my fear,
Burn my thoughts, ignite my soul!
Let comfort enfold and confidence remain.
I close my eyes and see your hands bleeding for me
I needed saving today, and you set me free.

There is a fear that haunts
That creeps, that stalks
Up a staircase, ascending voice
Or familiar tone, you turn to stone.
There's a feeling so sad, of
Guilt of pain, it saps you dry, you cry.
Leaves you bitter, lonely and cold
Your limbs contract in foetus fold.
But there's a Hand so strong, so gentle so soft
Lifts you out and picks you up
A Hand that heals, restores and mends
That hand strengthens, protects, that Hand defends.
