Fear 1

(I had a request from someone to write them a piece of poetry, so we could compare our skill in the subject, so here it is)

Darkness, surrounding.
Voices, calling.
Creatures, lurking.
A maiden, screaming.

Fire, burning.
Bone, melting.
Structure, creaking.
Building, collapsing.

Couple, rowing.
Insults, flying.
Tears, flowing.
Hearts, breaking.

(Okay, so that was my first attempt. As I started writing I realized that, even though it portrayed three things people could fear [The Unknown, Disaster, Heartbreak] it didn’t capture the essence of fear, nor am I particularly pleased with the outcome. So, I shall be trying again.)
