The reverse of love and hate; dark and light. - 29 November 2005


Trip in fear with smiles,
Fall in fear with friendship.
Trip with love in black,
Fall in love with the sodden.

To the point
Of a disease
That whispers
A sacred

Holding out a hand,
An offer to a dance.
A refusal for a smile,
Evil as she may.

Don’t make me
Like you do with
The kindness.

Trip in fear with love,
Fall in fear of a partner.
Trip with love in funeral,
Fall in love with you.

its the fear that hold many back but those who can over come the fear will realise that though life is harsh and short it also has the things we need to become stronger. atleast that is my take on this poem i liked this one alot

beautiful and intriguing, your way of playing with words and contrasts...
