BEFRIENDING FEAR

To release me from hellish nights let's talk now, Fear... I leave, yet your shadow follows me; a darkened grime blowing on my mind like an uninvited guest from a demonic realm. The macabre of nights holds no clues but reflects my image through you: Realizing this now I oppose those vicious whispers, and embed them in the dirge of sand: When confronted with inner warfare O Fear, you turn from rage to cowardice; I walk away, never to come back... that phantom of rain tumbles as mist shines. Feeling empowered now, your hunts lose as my soul claims its final deliverance-- I’m no longer a pawn. Fear Contest for Debbie Guzzi Re-submitted 8/30/2017
