Fear Per Brenda Arledge’s Word Prompt

I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.


Overview of Three Poems

This article had three poems based on the 32nd prompt of Brenda Arledge. She has truly been an inspiration to me to write poetry or short stories. Learning new ways of expressing ourselves is so important. Her inspiration has done so much for me, as I now have the confidence to try new ways of writing or expressing myself.

I have enjoyed writing poetry and some short stories. Brenda has been such a blessing to me. I enjoy writing poetry and short stories.


Acrostic Poem

Fear can be understood when met face on

Always know decision is the key to change

Every decision is a very important choice

Rising to the challenge to have a good result


Fear will pursue you always every day

You can run for your life for many days

The stalker follows you into the maze

Never quitting despite desperate plays

Legs getting tired as we are pursued

Gasping for breath as I try to run fast

Fear still dominates my pourly sour mood

Hoping every day will not be my last

Exhausting this stress consumes my one thought

Yet all of this maybe all be for nought

6 Signs Of An Emotionally Abusive

Her Fear

This poem talks about a woman in an abusive relationship, and she does not know how to escape it.

She was happy on the day she wed

Thinking he was her partner so she said

What would happen in the days ahead

Fear would haunt her wherever she fled

The bliss was superb when they met

She thought he was foolish to be in debt

Now she really wanted to not be upset

Fear would never let her just to forget

He was so much fun when they met at first

However their relationship was the worst

He hit and punched her, she was coerced

Fear filled her when anger was dispersed

If she just smiled pretending all was well

The days she lived were much like a hell

So much happened, she could not tell

Fear consumed her, she could not rebel

How to quickly escape this horrible life

She couldn’t get away from this awful strife

It was like being cut with a very sharp knife

Fear paralysed her and she felt paralyzed


Life overwhelmed her each and every day

She knew she did not want him to stay

Help was needed for her to make a play

Longed for just a much better today

As weeks go on can't she ever be free

At what expense or to what little degree

She wants to to flee, shs’e never lazy

Fear may stop her but he is on a spree

One day she must escapes or she will die

She truly just wants to just say a goodbye

She ponders her situation and wonders why

Fear again stops, once again hear her cry

6 Signs Of Abused People Who Have Been

Domestic abuse is a coercive, controlling behavior. Women in particular can get caught up in this pattern of behavior and not know how to escape. This can occur in any gender, age, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, or social circumstance. It is a problem worldwide.
