Fear - Poem by Kathrine Philip

In the dark I clutch my bear
Feeling someone is watching me
So I hide under my covers breathing softly
And black is all I can see

I hear noises outside my window
And I fear someone is there
Standing over me
So I squeezed my stuffed bear

My stomach has turned into a knot
And my eyes shut together
My heart slowly beats
And I feared the night might go on forever

Then suddenly my covers lifted
And I let out a scream
But nothing escaped my lips
Nothing was what it had seemed

I feared to look up
As darkness entered my soul
I loosened my grip upon my bear
And I had begun to feel more cold

Reality came upon me
And since, I was never the same
Fear roams my heart
And now all I feel is shame

No longer a child I loose happiness
And I hear my parents fight
People lie to me constantly
My freedom is out of sight

And I still want my bear
To squeeze when I am sad
Which now I feel all the time
These childish fears got me depressed and mad.

These are my childish fears......
