when i meet you again

You float in my mind
Like a never-ending river
It sometimes makes me shiver
I wish you could go away
Feeling small
Taking your call
Should’ve let it go to voicemail
But you left a trail
And I’m following
Since I’m stuck in your trap
Forgetting love’s map
When I begin to see again
I beat myself up for being too blind
Looking for love
But instead I watched my eyes find
Not the first time
Fear used to hold me tight
When I meet fear again
I’ll wave goodbye
Remember that it’s just a lie
I might say thank you
For showing me the gift of freedom
But I think I’ll stick with
It doesn’t deserve my magic
All those times it convinced me life was so tragic
Yet that wasn’t me
It was you
I feel you weakening and trying to grab me too
Bye bye fear
I’ll never let you near
The Universe, me
Is always right here

This poem is very special to me, in my youth, fear had a tight hold on me. This poem starts as if I met fear again but I didn’t, it’s just recalling the experiences I’ve had with it. Then it goes to what I’ll say if I meet fear again, and somehow it gets to me actually talking to fear. I think it so important to face fear head on, so this poem was about forgiving myself for not doing so in the past and then actually doing it, because I’m strong now. I hope this helps you on your journey, be fearless and free -Ace

      • Happy New Year Dear Ace may all your dreams come true 💙 Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The phrase ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race 💙 Master of the Pen. 🙏💫

  1. It doesn’t deserve my magic – I love the power in this! So beautiful, your poem fills me with joy. Reminds me of when fear and I had a inseparable relation. It still visits me in bits and pieces, and I love how I can more often smile while sensing it. Keep going my friend, your writings are so heartfelt beautiful.

    • Thank you so much!! Yes, I love how you describe it as the “dance”, that’s a perfect analogy! Exactly, fear can try to creep in, but it is up to us to lean back, see the fear, and then let it go and return back to love. Thank you for your support and kind comment! Much love ❤️


  2. Wow, that was a brilliant subject and even more, incredible poem! I loved the last lines,
    “Bye bye fear
    I’ll never let you near
    The Universe, me
    Is always right here”
    They’re so powerful and can make a huge difference, if one only musters up the courage to say it.
    Excellent poem!!❤️
