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.
