A Poem by Treo LeGigeo

Fear  [feer] –noun a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.

I stand, the night closing around me,
I stare into the dark whirlpool of black,
I feel the cold wind lash at my skin,
I am afraid.

Nowhere to turn,
Nowhere to go,
Lost in the woods,
Stranded in a void of nothingness.

Rustling of leaves,
Light footsteps,

Frozen I stand,
My heart racing in my chest,
The silence like a thick blanket,
There is a tap on my shoulder.

I force myself to move,
I turn,
I see,

kept me interested, leaving the ending open gives a sense of wonder. What did you see? I like it.

Kinda reminds me of the time I got lost in the woods, how easy it is to get turned around. But as you can tell, i found my way out :) this was a great poem.

Very imaginary, it makes me think of being lost in the woods, or of a nightmare. Creative, (:
