Fear.

I do believe the darker side of my muse has come out to play.

Fear.

Isolation; stark and dreary... ... ... {living alone}
No food for mouth or thought
A starveling in a dusty cave.

Paranoia
; tense and wary
Assault! Rape! Terrorism!
Add some swine to your flu – today!

Confidence; or lack thereof
Leer, with teeth oversized, or
Shrivel, seething and unnoticed.

Success
; so many definitions of
Financial – emotional – scientific?
I'll skewer you with mine.

Depression; slow descension into
Inevitable and suffocating.
Wall of bitterness; /op{p}ressed in/.

Love/lust; conflicting urges... ... ... {selflessness vs. hormones}
Coyly vulnerable, she ensnared
Him, nonsensically rabbling.

I'm quite a bizarre teenager. Intellect and eccentricity enthrall me. I am torn between science and literature, unsure which I wish my future to rest with.

Writing is my constant, and ensures my sanity (or perhaps lack thereof).

Gives a sense of utter frustration with a taste of bitter misfortune

Thanks, Rebecca. And yes, as I said in the summary, this is the darker side of my muse... I was somewhat frustrated when I wrote this, I think. ^^

Very well done, the individual descriptions would stand alone as a nice picture of Fear But, as a new shot or snippet is leveled and piled upon the other, it deepens the the clarity of your meaning, of the Fear Nice piece. Donnie/Sinbad

Thank you. I am glad the poem does this for you, that was effectively what I was going for :)
Fifty points to anyone who can tell me why "/op{p}ressed in/" is written in such a manner. ;D

I try to make sure my words come from my heart, and are then analysed and utterly mutilated by my head. The results tend to be interesting that way. ;)
Oh, and the fifty points offer has expired >.< the letters 'opressedin' make an anagram of 'depression'. Hence why one of the 'p's was enclosed in parentheses.
