My Nemesis

I know what fear looks like
I've seen its gnarled face in sparkly surfaces
In all its camouflage and masquerade
Like an old acquaintance
Its form cannot elude me
Because for all its hurt, cruelty and disdain
I took off its mask, and stared in its face

I've been in fear's audience
Its sultry voice is a sound too familiar
Its whisper like a million buzzing fairy wings
The words carry on in the winds
Brews hatred, discord, envy, unrest and worry
Even the mighty and the brave
Get caught in its whim

I've felt fear's chilly limbs grasp for my sanity
And choke on my will and desire to live
For it made my bossom its pillows, you know
And cradled me in the long sleepless nights
Its unquenched thirst screamed for my soul's strength
And reached out for the rays of the 'morrow's sunrise
