Sudden Sadness

That feeling of sadness is sweeping
All over me as a sudden for
No specific reason.

I let the feeling overwhelm me
I need to see through this, I have to
Dive deeper into it.

I was happy just moment ago
so why ? Some tension and stress have raised,
From the depth of my heart

As I opened it up to someone
Who had opened hers to me without
Any expectation.

All the things I thought were only dreams,
Living in my head, in a different
Universe
Have found
a more
Solid
Reality
As
The
Words
Came
Out.

The realisation hurting me
Now I have to act but already
Fear of failure hits me.

I hate that feeling of guilt that comes
From the reason of the heart being
Genuine, truer than
reason.

    Wonderful! You really need to start thinking about submitting your work to literary journals. It surpasses much that I’ve seen. I’m guessing you write in French first, and then translate?

      Do you think I could submit my work to some journals or anything ? I had never considered that.
      😮

      I think and write in English. I resort to French only when I am completely at a loss to find a specific word/notion. In such cases I look for an English translation that puts me back on track.

    Your poetic voice isn’t forced, but rings true. I definitely think you should, Adrien!

    Check these links for a few places to consider:

      I don’t know what to say. Thank you !
      Your trust in me in unsettling because I had not considered pushing things so far.
      I am scared because I have no idea whether inspiration will last. And I fear criticism as well.
      I lack confidence.

      I will let this idea brew in the back of my head though. I bookmarked the links and will try to spend more time getting used to the whole thing.

      Thank you !

    I don’t think your inspiration will disappear … just water/fertilize it as you would a flower, and leave your mind receptive.
    I know how you feel. I have lacked confidence and feared criticism my entire life … and I’m 64! For some, like us, it’s a constant struggle.
    Let the idea mull in the background. It will find its way into your dreams, and then perhaps into a decision to forge ahead and offer your talent to the world. 🙂
