FEAR

Fear,
Skulks below the surface,
Patiently waiting in calm waters,
For a moment,
When I cease to focus,
Cease to push you down,
Leaving you to stir the sea,
Whipped dark and frothy,
Brooding,
Angry,

Fear,
Finding me unaware,
Striking me in the face,
Burrowing into my skin,
Gnawing into my mind,
Sliding me into a deep,
Debilitating,
Aching, 
Numbing, 
Conscious coma,

Fear,
Rise from the depths,
Come out of hiding,
Alight on my shoulder,

Fear,
Stand in front of me,
Make me shudder,
Ice over my veins,
Numb my mind,
Force me into hiding,
Stay with me each moment,
Every day,
Until I become bored,
With your presence,
And your pretend anarchy,
And brush you aside,
Like a speck of dust.
