Questionable Fear

What is this little darkened space?
Where has everyone gone?
What was it that I said today?
What did I ever do wrong?

Will you turn the light on please?
Or maybe even crack the door?
Won’t you take the hands of time
And return me to hours before?

Who is this playing tricks with me?
Why must you do this now?
Won’t somebody rescue me?
Or help me out somehow?

Anxiety Fears

Afraid of Fear.
Afraid of Life.
Afraid of Confrontation.
Afraid of Strife.
Afraid of Loneliness.
Afraid of Crowds.
Afraid of Silence.
Afraid of Being Loud.
Afraid of Self.
Afraid of Others.
Afraid of Someone.
Afraid of Another.
Afraid of Weakness.
Afraid of Strength.
Afraid of Brevity.
Afraid of Length.
Afraid of Dying.
Afraid of Surviving.
Afraid of Relapsing.
Afraid of Reviving.
Afraid of Life.
Afraid of Fear.
Afraid of Making it
One more year.
