Fear said to me....

Fear said to me close your eyes.

You can't stay awake much longer.

Your will to keep your eyes open will soon give in.

Come to the darkness were you'll never know what to expect.

Fear whispered in my ear are you afraid of me? With a chilling voice my skin filled with goose bumps from head to toe.

I could no longer move fear was taking over my body.

Tears start to fall from my eyes and down my cheeks.

I want to wake from this horrible night mare that is taking control of me.

Scream because fear takes over me each time i close my eyes. I no longer have someone to rescue me from this horrible pain.

Then i let courage take over me and look at fear straight in the eyes and say

"I'm not afraid of you" .

And like snow fear melts from my body to no longer torture me.
