Fear's Embrace

by Michaelw1two Inspired by the word-works of Mamata Sampath with that it comes, what lies beneath it; beauty or horror, it captivates me; crawls and creeps through me, to it, I succumb, while being; agast of it, I fear it reaching me, little, do I believe or know fear; sly manipulator, your rationale in a whisper, self-doubt makes you as the weak; and begging for mercy, you let go, one, surrendering to oblivion; for what, or why, I do now know, fear, you do acknowledge your hold; you make me helpless and tossed, let me want to live, and love the wrest; to be haplessly torn, by life and love, like a walk, in moonlight, my essence glowing; beyond the dark and the unforeseen, be mighty fear, but be the unmerciful servant; I seek your help to free myself, from me, I do need you, I am ready to build your altar; with my love, passion, pain and rejection, I embrace it all, life, beauty, love, and death; I accept it, it is you fear, and I need you, your dwelling place, is my sanctuary; I am now fed and freed by you, and, I live completely for your embrace.
