Fear is vindictive
she is daring
she is bold
she is timid at times
she is dangerous at most
she gossips
she screams

Fear cries
she demands
she destroys
she wraps her hands
around your throat
she strangles you
she will kill you
if you let her
sweetly drown you

Fear creeps up behind you
she hides in the dark
her hair wild and everywhere
her nails are claws
They dig,
Cut deep

Fear leaves you bleeding
alone and diminished
A cold-hearted woman
She looks you in the eye
as you die.
