Enveloped by Fear


Walker

That silver cage that surrounded me

Had now become my closest friend.

I’d come to depend on it.

It was ready to support,

Always there for me.

How could I possibly

Decide to

Let it go

For a

Cane?

It had stood ready to help me in the night.

When I was alone it brought me comfort.

I did not have to worry,

It wouldnt let me fall again.

I was safe with it,

Yet, it held me back.

No! Fear held me!

So I took the

Cane and

Walked!

Double Reverse Etheree

NaPoWriMo 2018. Day 6

Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. That could be a poem with very long lines, or very short lines. Or a poem that blends the two.
