You know in my eyes you

can see it--the fear.

The pleading for help

and anxiety sincere.


For so many reasons I need

your reassuring hand.

Sometimes I feel like I'm

stuck in emotional quicksand.


Just need you by my side

please don't go run and hide.

Fear dreams keeping me up at night,

Stay by my side during my plight.


I love you for being here

and for promising to stay near.

Because you know in my eyes you 

can see it--the fear.

                      Thank you for a very beautiful and emotional poem. We writers should be grateful that we are able to express our feelings. So many people out there are not able to do that and do have a much harder time.

                      • Christina8

                        I know, I thank you for such a great comment. I found some of my other writes "forced" so thats why I chose this one. Again, much appreciated!

                      • Poetic Dan

                        Will share this with people I know 😉
                        Reflection really helps
                        Great to go with the flow

                        I dealt with mine by listening to the dog. TRUTH!
