Sometimes there's nowhere to hide ... the monster always finds you


‘Reflections of Fear’

 

Please, someone stop the dark

The eyes will find me

Those peering, probing eyes

That seem to follow

Through the window

To where I am

 

I’m not sure that this is real

But my head tells me it’s coming

Creeping and curling its strange tendrils around me

Squeezing, scaring and screeching

Into me and around me

 

I feel like I’m falling, but I am only failing

This is killing me, but I am only surviving

When will it take me and return me

To the darkness where I am afraid

 

Footsteps, fright, monsters in the maze

That has become my mind

Frozen, fumbling, losing the fight

Feeling the fright

Nervous, uptight

 

Please, someone stop the light

It shows me too much of what I know but don’t wish to see

Not my own eyes

Only theirs

That follow my every thought

Penetrating, accusing, stealing the darkness

Finally

To wrap me up in my own misery

Until I am gone

Do not fear this devil liked creature. He is trying to scare you and thinks it is fun. The big bad monster must go and leave you alone. You need a life full of fear and can find it. Just don't let it worry you and live life to the fullest and do what you want to do. Life is too short to have scares like this bother you.

This has a strong and real core

I am quoting a verse in the bible which says, "Our God is not a God of fear, but of perfect love and a sound mind". I am sorry I cannot tell where I got that memorized verse except that it is in the New Testament somewhere after Acts. I hope it gives you comfort. It gives me comfort and hope.

GAD i know this monster well--stormphobic, claustrophobic, arachnophobic...LOL

the worst is storms, followed closely by tight, narrow, closed in spaces and spiders LOL

seriously: i am a wreck sometimes

brilliant capture of fear--well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)

This is very unique and describes fear to the tee.
