fear
snuck in
it had been
hid until now
it smiles and then it grins
I have to wipe my fevered brow
fear I refuse entrance, I won't allow
it wants to torture me for things I did back then
this time fear will not find me I avow
I am not like I was back when
living for pills and gin
please tell me how
blank out sin
its twin
tear

Yes you could, Baby Girl. It isn't nearly as difficult as it looks. I mean, I did it, anyone can.

Thank for your kind words . . .

I'm not familiar with the form but you did well with it... A good concept and strong ending.  Fear is the devil... Or of the devil anyway... You do have power over it.

Eh, it is just a matter of writing a poem in the shape you see. Darkness is many thing, but you are correct it stems from Satan, and there is a way to fight and overcome it. Unfortunately many people, myself included, thrash around for years, decades, before they find the right way to combat it.

Thanks Michael . . .
