Fear 6-4-11When we wereyoungerWe believed we knew what it meantTo be afraid.Now we look back at all thoseGreen sweaters in the closet,crooked toys under the bed,masks on our older siblings shelves,And we laugh at our previous misfortuneOf having to encounter those "fearful",But fun, times.But now it has started up again.Only the monsters behind those lockers,The shadow you feel glaring at you,The chill you get when you imagine the pain,It's all real.All those feelings of thefearOf losing someone you hold dear.Something you can't live without.Something irreplaceable.Something you couldn't evenImagine life without.I've felt it before andI've had those fears becomeThe truth.I'mpetrified,Afraid,Of having those feelings again.I'm afraid of De Ja VuI'm afraid of everything happeningAll over again.
