Fear is the ever present force living my life. Fear wakes me in the morning and paranoia propells my sleep. Important life decisions are made by fear. My fear of life is only overshadowed by my fear of death. I fear darkness. I fear being exposed in the light. I fear being alone but not quite as much as being with people. I am afraid to let one single solitary person know the real me. My life is quickly slipping away without having ever been. Therefore, death terrifies me until I am weak in my knees.
