The Fear

Being near any of your fears

Gives for a short moment

An enormous energy

Getting older makes time

Going faster because

You stop feeling as intensely

Confronting strong feelings

Anxiety on Ice

Sometimes you are trapped

In your anxiety and worry

Fearing the worst

Expecting the apocalypse

But in reality

Nothing happened

You are trapped by

Your own fantasy

Into a world of horror

When this happened

A hundred times it is

Recognisable

The Projection of Fear

Fear is a strange thing

It catches you

Holding you hostage

Making you not solve

Anything, just avoiding things

Still sometimes useful

But only when you

Trust yourself to act

Upon it

On Fear

Fear can be a good feeling

Keeping body and mind focused

Even though it eventually kills you

Do not let fear rule you

Just let fear

Save you now and then

The Center

Freezing in the afternoon breeze

The setting sun changes the colour

Of the city giving an illusion of ancient

History that didn’t exist

The calm, slick atmosphere of the

Administrative building

So frustrating in its denial

And lack of a soul

Promises a future

That is doomed and fears

For it’s own shadow

I am that shadow
