Shadow Of Fear

Written by: R. e. taylor

Shadow Of Fear

It follows me where ever I go
Nipping at my heels
It torments my body
Tortures my soul
I know it hides in the light
Coming out in the night
The perfect disguise
I face it down but I know
I know that it knows me too well
It knows my weaknesses
It knows what the world is truly like
It knows my feelings toward life
The shadow of fear is immortal
Haunting one and then another
Hunting for the weakest of us all
Yet it doesn't kill
It watches as we lose our minds
Terrified of even ourselves
Even when we are suicidal just watches
Pushing just one step further
Not letting us turn away from the pain
It takes me to the limit and beyond
And it just laughs
