Fear is…

by Indigo Moss aged 8

Fear is a shadow dancing on the wall
It is like an everlasting horror movie planting nightmares in your mind
It is dismay, like a black stone gnawing at your heart
It makes you want to cling to your teddy and pull the covers over your head.

Fear is the monster hiding under your bed
It is like the knot in your stomach
It is uneasiness of knowing something bad will happen and you can’t face it alone
It makes you want to scream for your dad.

Fear is the creak of the staircase
It is like the howling of the wind
It is panic, like the trees tapping on your windows
It makes you want to disappear.
