"I know that in the darkroom of fear negatives develop" - nice.

"The uncertain limb of future needles me" - another nice. (Mt 6:34)

But you will fill yourself with courage and lookup and confront your fear for you are a survivor.

Your secrets are safe with me. :)

Great writing and I love the imagery.

Wonderful imagery; We do have to expose ourselves, like film, like old photos. The negative and the positive to produce a thing of beauty~ Well Done!

Well done. You wrote pretty well. My wishes.

Rose said...

Beautiful imagery - there is nothing to fear but fear itself (and haunting secrets; skeletons in the closets that seek freedom) :) Nice write Celest.

This is incredible and I can certainly relate. Though I know fear hinders one's life, I also know that we all have those fears. Your choice of words is wonderfully creative.

Honest and exposed. I felt the connection to the poems narrator. I know that fear is the opposite of love, and if we embody unconditional loving we eradicate fear.

I really liked this poem - I especially love the darkroom of fear line - very clever. Well done. Keep writing!

Baishali,
You have written about an emotion which so many feel, but never have the freedom to express, in words.
Very well written.......

Best wishes, Eileen

I also love the image of the negatives developing in the darkroom of fear. Fear is definitely a huge obstacle to our spiritual growth...at least for me it is. Thank you for words to ponder.
