Crocodile Fears

Looking back, I can't say where the fears came from
They crept up like some mad crocodile slither into my head
And wound themselves around me like a blanket.
None of them had any truth and they were nothing of substance
But it felt like I was falling
Unaided
The purveyor of fears even sold me a spade so I could dig a hole
Only I found out then
That the floor is Rock Solid
And that I was sitting down
Feeling only frightened of the fear of falling
While firmly on the floor.

copyright Jacky Hughes May 2004

Jacky, Your poetry always amazes me. This one's no different. Great imagery! I like your placement of words on the page for added effect. I always end each of your poems the same way--stunned, with my mouth hanging open. I did notice one word you might want to check out. It's 'slither' in the second line. It caught me off guard. I read it as 'slithering' but then realized it wasn't. Maybe it was just me.
