12 (who?)
Driving me into darkness
Windows shut
Eyes shut
Huddled in fetal position
I couldn't stop the frightened tears running down my face

That strange sense
That looming animosity I was clutched in
It has never disappeared
Even if it never truly existed

This tower over me, this shadow
The bane of everything I dream about
Haunts me

I can't speak, not face to face
Look in the eyes
Hear that piercing, blasting voice
I go numb
I'm stupefied

Alone and vulnerable
I feel so weak and defenseless
Just the mention of it
Curdles my blood

Treated like a friend but feeling like
I am the prey
Going cold in an instant, tense and dry
Wishing only to look at the floor

I wouldn't dare approach
Nor wish to be approached
It's like meeting a black hole
And feeling the blackness of the gravity on the hairs of your skin

I can't scream, I can't cry
I can't run and hide or fight
I just have to find a shield
And pray the fire doesn't come beating down

This is a phobia
It has no particular name
But I'm sure it's not natural
It is something to worry about
It is something to stay away from

Just leave

Leave me alone
I always feel terrible to admit I feel this way. But no matter how long it's been and how hard I try, I can't get over that fear. It's not a hate entirely, but a loathing for the feeling I have whenever this happens to me.
