FEARING

Fear is...

...your pulse pounding bass beats in your eardrums.
...a small, chilled breath of a breeze, caressing the inner hollows of your heart.
...that sickening sweet smell that make your arm hairs stand on end.
...those achings in your limbs, screaming for a mercy you cannot provide.
...the vibrant, technicolor static you see when you slam your eyelids shut.
...an awful teasing copper taste your tongue cannot escape.

Fear is only a metaphor. So why are we afraid?

Great job! I love the comparisons and i completely imagine and feel all of what you are saying when i read this! Keep writing! I've read four of your things so far and i really think that you are a great writer! Keep putting your emotions into your writing, that is what makes good writing great! Hope to read more of your stuff! :)
