“A Fear That Loves” by Zak Atkinson from Duke Ellington School of the Arts

A Fear that Loves

Don’t I fear love
From
Rejection
From
Cowardice
From
Past
Wounds
Re-opened
From
Fear, don’t I love

Zak Atkinson is a student of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts’ Literary Media and Communications department’s class of 2022. Alongside writing, he has a long history of musical talent and has played piano at USC in LA in celebration of an accomplished musical assessment.

This poem was generated from poet Derrick Weston Brown’s irrepressibly inventive creative writing class at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Triple dap to Mr. Brown for teaching the form and helping to spread the skinny on the Skinny.
