La bête noire

(Never have I been so consumed

It begins with monsters
and fear of dark rooms;
quelled with the simplest solutions – a kiss from mom, a hug from dad, or a blanket over our heads.

Never have I been so aroused

With age the anxiety evolves
concerns with predicaments beyond our control;
death, betrayal, or failure cannot be eased easily.

Never have I been so distressed

Even in conditions under our oversight
dread never fails to exhaust our minds;
Dissolving confidence in spite of our might.

Never have I been so daunted)

until
now

by fear.
