Some Facts On Fear.




it coats your throat
with a thickness that
prevents you from
swallowing it
it snaps the hairs
on the back of your neck
to attention
it shrivels your testicles
bulges your eyes
increases the girth of nipples
wets pants
loosens bowels
it reduces the boldest
to sniveling heaps
trembles the solid
weight of flesh
a magnitude of quaking insues
breath increases to gasps
pulses throb bass like
at temples, and throat
adams apples go bobbing
adrenaline rushes
faster then your limbs
in a mad scramble to escape
the slightest sound magnifies it
the tiniest touch
like a sledghehammer
on your skin
knee jerk
cold sweat
bathes you
smiles become twisted
evil sneers
paranoia backstrokes
through your brains waves
shadows loom like demons
the scrape of a shoe
twists your neck
beyond normal velocity
a persuasive force
in the hands of phsychotics
a phone rings
accompanied by heavy breathing
the silence
like fingernails on a blackboard
to a woman alone
purses stuffed with
mace, and whistles
to deter rape
and assault
but fear goes undeterred
city streets harbor it
televisions honor it
wringing profit
from it's grip
movies thrive
on it's razor edge
it is a constant companion
that we fail
to acknowledge
until it rears it's ugly head
respect it
pay heed to it's whisper
for those who don't
have been consumed by it's
frightful results and
they fear no more.

Your graphic wordy and lyrical capture of fear is absolutely photographic.

Fear is well described, the emotion of fear gets is poetic dues here!
