When asked what I’m afraid of;
I often lie,
I say that I fear being trapped by the open seas; in the roaring deep where concealed doused, creatures traverse in disguise.
I explain the dread of shrinking spaces,
Precious oxygen escaping from ever constricting places.
I say that I panic falling from the height of human constructs and Deity clad pinnacles that the heavens contrived.
I say dying in slothful agony, or violently is where my terror and mind collide,
But I’ve lied.
What sends chills through my veins and frightens my proverbial heart;
I fear, tremble, dread, I forebode you being cognizant of my whole self, from my view.
