Fearing

Fear is the developing emotion
Inside of me now
Fear....
Of what...
Of who?
Fear....
The word alone sends jolts of lightning
Down my back
Replacing the irresistible smile
For one sly smirk.
Fear...
No it doesn't leave
It lurks deep down in the body
Making it quiver, shake, explode if it must.
Fear...
Is it a state of mind
Or just an emotion?
Fear...
Nothing to fear but fear itself
