These are my fears.

I fear spiders -- I detest their long, spindly legs that creep

Faster than my eyes can see.


I fear driving -- my white knuckles cannot seem to master

The science of steering.


I fear heights -- any precipice will invariably make me shiver.

(Ironically, I also happen to love roller coasters.)


I fear darkness, its completeness,

My invisibility its result.


I fear death -- the mirror-twin of darkness,

The vacuum of the grave.

The End
