QUADRILLE

fear drove me
down that track
where pain and terror
lurked

fear found me
shaking in the quagmire
of lies repeated
lost

but love
lifted me above myself
turned out the fear
free

and love
came just in time
before the darkness
overwhelmed
hope

a quadrille on ‘fear’ for dVerse poets

  1. Love the words, “love lifted me above myself.” Sometimes we can get in our way to finding happiness in this life. Beautiful piece, Maureen. ❤
