Footsteps…Haiku

Footsteps quickening

chased by fear relentlessly

shadows closing in…

It’s a Good Thing….

It’s a good thing when two people really care,

about each others feelings and the life that they share.

It’s a good thing when two people can be honest and true,

while looking forward to all the things they can do.

Together as one, a dynamic team indeed,

while devouring the energy on which they feed.

Together they know there’s nothing they can’t do,

the uniqueness of their bond is rare and few.

It’s a good thing when ‘trust’ reigns supreme,

to provide a strong platform to support this team.

It’s a good thing when two people are on the same page,

similar opinions on life; no matter their age.

It’s a good thing when men can truly come clean,

and do what they say and say what they mean.

It’s easy to say what a woman wants to hear,

the halfhearted attempts to conceal the fear.

The fear of revealing the true person they are,

afraid of being judged; not being up to par.

It’s a good thing to realize the truth lies within,

it will set them free to be a man among men.

Fear’s Ride

 

The power of fear is so overwhelming,

this I know firsthand.

I’ve allowed it to control a big part of my life,

but finally, I understand.

Fear firmly plants you in your tracks,

no movement in any direction.

Before you know it, you’ve grown accustomed,

to the illusion of its protection.

Fear masters so much false deception,

while entangling one in its throes.

How does one get off this delusional ride?

Where will it stop? Nobody knows.

At last, I’ve gotten off this ride,

and I will not get on again.

The next time fear disguises itself,

and deceitfully invites me in,
