Fear

You fear
acid rain
hole in ozone-layer
I fear
snake-bites of betrayals
Catch-22 situations

You fear
computer-viruses
n-bombs
I fear
looks of indifference
agony of separation

You fear
haunted houses
carnivorous animals
I fear
masked cannibals
iron hands in velvet gloves

You fear
AIDS
cancer
death
I fear
those moments
when something dies within me
while I am still alive.
