Poetry Afraid Something is waiting for me outside – It beckons with a creepy smile Covered in black, it chills me, making my insides swirl; As the bile rises, my throat feels choked, my thoughts race, I feel fear (c) Sanch V @ Sanch Writes (23 May 2017) Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...

And if it is the unknown fear then God save . Shailaja May 24, 2017 at 11:09 am That was so chilling! You can sense the presence of it like a real, living creature, which sometimes is exactly what fear is like. Shantala May 24, 2017 at 1:05 pm Chilling narration, Sanch. You have conveyed the essence of the word in just a few well-crafted words. Nicely done. Ramya May 24, 2017 at 2:18 pm Ah… scary. What is it?

For me, home is a sanctuary, so the idea that all the bad in the world is on the other side of the door felt true. Shilpa Gupte May 26, 2017 at 6:17 pm Your words bring to mind the ever present fear, cloaked in black that has haunted me for years together. It is really all a figment of our imagination, yet, we keep feeding it and succumb to it without even putting up a good fight.
