What is your greatest fear?

"The Artist Ruins Her Canvas" - a rondel

I'm so afraid of losing you,

don't turn away from my embrace;

my mind is spinning out of place

recalling pain I put you through.

My sole intent was to pursue

and every thought of pain erase.

I'm so afraid of losing you,

don't turn away from my embrace.

Please tell me, what am I to do

now that I'm fallen from God's grace,

now that my heart is forced to face...

I caused you more pain than I knew.

I'm so afraid of losing you.

    Not having that sinificant other to share the rest of my life with , would be something I wouldn't want to face! Also not having my desires and goals not met wouldnt feel too good either!

    Your poetry is music to my eyes, thank you!Cheers!

    Nice Rondel, very evocative.

    My greatest fear is the fear of failure.

    Failing as a father or husband, failing my family. those are my greatest fears.

    After being involved in 3 wars for this country, Im not scared of much else.

    Why am I aghast at the lack of grace, shown in the world on faces...too sublime for me to see... through TV images crowd out my destiny.

    This is a lovely rondel Eva. My compliments. One of these days I have to try a classical form.

    Perhaps the loveliest Rondel I've ever read.

    ...all my rabbits dieing off because of my mistake. I have nightmares about it almost every night. AAAAH! TERROR!!!
