Tormentation

This poem is meant to serve as an inspiration to others. As women I feel as though society has put us into a position where we are inclined to fear the world around us and also fear the consequences that come with standing up for yourself

Tormentation

Fear Is a Pair of Shackles

I struggle until my will to go on hits the hard gravel

It binds my wrists 

I try to succumb and then BOOM fear its me with a forced kiss 

 

Fear swallows you  

It Is A Whale 

See I knew fear better than anyone else

I wanted courage but fear is the card i was dealt

 

Fear attacked me and I regret the decision I chose

When I was given the chance to run-

I froze 

 

Fear chased me 

It Was A Wolf In The Night

When I needed to win I slipped

My heart hit every beat 

and with every beat i felt my stomach flip

 

My heart felt so alive but so faint at the same time

Fear made it beat out of my chest

Fear wanted to me quiz my response time

Fear tested my strength and I failed the test

 

Fear grabbed and consumed me

It wanted to see me dead

When I told fear I was done

It punctured me in my lung

 

I could not fathom to breathe

When I tried to be big it was followed by a wheeze

Fear is a demon

When I found some light he kicked me and it burned like the sun

 

See Fear Is Darkness

He caught up to me 

He beat me until I could not see

 

See I knew fear better than anyone else

He stalked me 

He tricked me 

He wore a grin

I thought fear was my friend

 

He visited in my sleep

For he knew i was weak

Fear wanted to put my light to an end

It is my fault

 

Fear Was a Con Artist

Fear told me he would help me 

When I grabbed his hand he took me and never gave me back

Fear Was My Kidnapper

 

See fear took my joy

Fear used me as his toy

Fear had me scared to walk

Fear made me choke when I talked

 

Fear took my dreams and balled them up

It flicked me in my throat and had my life stuck

Fear Was This Monstrous Being 

See I know fear better than anyone else

 

I remembered all thing things fear had done to me

I remember that he left me feeling completely empty 

I remember he wanted to kill me 

I built up my will and wanted to torment him the way he tormented me 

 

I kicked fear right in the head

And when the large shadow fell I needed to know he was dead

I did not stop at one blow and not even three 

No I kicked him until I saw as much fear in his eyes as he had given me 

 

He saw my pain as a game and he saw it as funny

Fear treated me the way a predator treats a bunny

But I showed fear that I could and deserved to be free

I beat and killed fear so now fear no longer haunts me
