The Fluidity of Fear

The Fluidity of Fear

Like a strong ocean current, fear took hold and pulled me out to sea,
The familiar shore of my life no longer visible,
Leaving me adrift in the depths.

The wave of fear rushed and crashed within,
Winding its way through my landscape,
Carving its destructive path,
Corroding confidence, eroding emotions, wearing away wisdom.

It ebbed and flowed around me,
Flooding dark corners of my mind and heart,
Lapping at old wounds, turning the tide of my life,
Damaging every part of me that tried to stand in its way.

Fear ruined me from the inside out,
Leaving me a mere shell of the person I used to be.
I pray I learn to swim in the fluidity of fear before it drowns me again.
