Fear is the monster under your bed.
It is the deepest darkest hole.

Fear is the all alone,
Shaking of you.

Fear is the howling of a canine,
At the dead of night.

Fear is your meaning,
That everybody thinks about.

Fear is the jumpy alertness
You get from your darkest secrets.

Fear is a hawk swooping down on a mouse
That is not expecting it.
