    Stunning imagery. I especially like “Fear trickles down like drops of venom” and “I blinked open an eye as dawn crept out alive.” The comparison of fear to a dream at the end is wonderful…never thought of it that way, but so true!

    Ah.. yes.. my FriEnd..
    the cognitive behavioral
    therapy oF a positive emotional
    SonG in vocal personal inspirational
    way to alleviate anxiety and fear..
    but sadly when one is
    forced in a corner to
    do stuff they
    come to believe
    they have to do..
    no matter the stress
    response that can come
    with that.. that science now
    shows can eventually destroy
    the vital organ systems of the Body
    REAL2… and truly lead to a premature
    death.. something old wive’s tales said
    oF ThE
    Of thAT HeRE..:)

    I really liked: “I blinked open an eye as dawn crept out alive”…and that last line summed it up perfectly, Sanaa.

    I love that opening line – I agree, fear does trickle – I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a sudden fear. And then I read ‘dawn crept out alive’ – great words! Much love, Kim x

    Nothing to fear, but … The reality is almost never as scary as that which we drum up in our own minds. “Fear can’t hurt you any more than a dream” is brilliant.

    “Fear can’t hurt you any more than a dream.”

    How thought-provoking. Really, what happens in our minds has the power to cause us the most pain and torment.

    Agreed fear can be quite venomous. Hey but we have an instinct of protective fear that cautions us. And there is some good on that.
