Fear Poems

Popular Fear Poems
by George Gordon Byron




The Serfs are glad through Lara's wide domain,
And slavery half forgets her feudal chain;
He, their unhoped, but unforgotten lord —
The long self-exiled chieftain is restored:

by Dylan Thomas

Too proud to die; broken and blind he died
The darkest way, and did not turn away,
A cold kind man brave in his narrow pride

On that darkest day, Oh, forever may
He lie lightly, at last, on the last, crossed
Hill, under the grass, in love, and there grow

Young among the long flocks, and never lie lost
Or still all the numberless days of his death, though

by Sara Teasdale

I am afraid, oh I am so afraid!
The cold black fear is clutching me to-night
As long ago when they would take the light
And leave the little child who would have prayed,
Frozen and sleepless at the thought of death.
My heart that beats too fast will rest too soon;
I shall not know if it be night or noon, --
Yet shall I struggle in the dark for breath?
Will no one fight the Terror for my sake,
The heavy darkness that no dawn will break?

by Maya Angelou

When I was young, I used to
Watch behind the curtains
As men walked up and down the street. Wino men, old men.
Young men sharp as mustard.
See them. Men are always
Going somewhere.
They knew I was there. Fifteen
Years old and starving for them.
Under my window, they would pauses,
Their shoulders high like the

What if I told you I like you?
Would you still treat me the same?
What if I told you I liked you several times since 8th grade?
Would you still maintain our friendship?
You have no idea what goes on in my mind and heart, although I really hope that you do.
I wish you knew, but I don't want to tell you
Because I know how it will end.
I'm not the type of girl you like, although I really wish I was.
I'm not as pretty as her, nor am I as smart as her. I don't want to be like her, but maybe, just maybe, if I was like her, you might have looked at me the way you did to her.
I wish this were in one of those books that I have read. Then there might be a chance of a plot twist, and maybe you like me back as well.

The Night of Solitude
by Lee-Ann Azzopardi

.... And where are you going?
Banishing yourself into the darkness
Leaving weeping
When will you return?
I am watching you through
The night of solitude
And the ache kills my psyche
While death seems reasonable
Alone, alone.....

Echoing Silence
by Zee K

The same smiling girl,
At night has eyes filled with tears ;
She would have nightmares,
Which were sufficed with her fears ;
No one heard her silent plead,
To help her when she was in need ;
As she falls deep into the dark hole,
With no light left in her soul ;

No one saw the little girl,

Her Lies
by Nad SZA

In the realm of shadows, where truths are concealed,
A lie that can never be revealed.
Elly, in fear of losing, does lie,
Her heart a tangled web, her intentions a sigh.

People misjudge her, her motives they doubt,
Assuming she's here to play games, to cast about.
But the truth, it lies deeper, in the heart of her plight,
She's afraid of being treated like a child, in their sight.

Bound by Flesh and Blood
by Lili De Assis

I build my own cage,
in an attempt to thrive,
but what if my passion, my soul, is just outside?
Inside there is nothing,
nothing but a carcass, rotting away over time
with familiar blood and familiar eyes
Generations of me holding my hand,
holding me down
begging for their fate to become my own
For a second it gets to me,

Today, I am
by Aras Acolipeps

Today, I am unable.
I’m incapable and unstable,
and if you thought I was ready,
well, give up already!

Today, I am small.
So I’m putting up a tall wall,
you’ll never get to me,
I won’t let you see.
