Fear - Poem by j. saca

i walk alone crumpling
dead leaves fractured

bones contemplating
desolate

fate, legs shaking

like twigs
spasms,

fingers

frozen;
it’s here.

my reckoning is now.

Shadows with faces spew
obscenities,
threats, a furious bark

It orders me to
run off; I do as I’m told. Running

away,

escape is not an option.

The body shakes soaked
In sweat, the heart beats

Breathless and on my knees
I turn and it waits

Dentures made out of ancient
Bark, these woods are alive as

It smiles and puts out its
hand. It becomes my
companion; I am one
with fear.
