"Don't knock on death's door. Ring the bell and run. He hates that."


I’m afraid of lots of things
Like heights and bugs and pain
But these are not my greatest fears –
And not one is my bane

My greatest fear is one that I
Don’t think I’ll ever share
Not with you and not with them
Not here, not anywhere

I’ll clutch it tightly, hold it close
I’ll hide it in my heart
And never scream, not even when
Its tearing me apart


The author's comments:
This poem is the expression of a part of me that I usually pretend doesn't exist, and it's dedicated to every person who ever felt real fear, and every person who felt that their fear was theirs alone.
