FEAR for contest

Written by: Victoria Anderson-Throop


There is a thing--
A fear to tremble heavens sounding
A fear to set my heart a pounding
  Not a spider webbing flies
  Or a monster with three eyes
 	 Not a mouse cheesing around
 	 Not a lightning chased by sound
 	 Spooky creatures in the night
 Do not give me screechy fright
 	 Darkest streets are not my fear
 	 Or the vampire of the year
But there is an ache
     that haunts me
a fright so big it daunts me
Something puts me in the 
      Knock out zone--for
What I fear
All alone.
