Angst

via Daily Prompt: Tremble

He was an expert in his field
Called oft from far and near
To look at him no one could guess
His passions mired in fear

There hid beneath unblemished  crown
Of knowledge unsurpassed
Veiled memory-swept across his eyes
Dark terrors from his past 

Now starkly bathed in dawn’s half light
Hands squeezed against his temples
He works to rise above his pain
But fails, falls down and trembles.
