Triskaidekaphobia - fear of Friday the 13th.

Triskaidekaphobia

Waking,

for a moment

I forget,

but then the knowledge

seeps

with the creaks,

the groans...

Can’t face this day

no matter the moans.

Covers pulled above my head

I listen

for hours,

paralyzed with dread

for in my

triskaidekaphobic state,

I know that

Jason’s waiting.

Actually he is trying to recover as he drums the stubs of his fingers on the table which he accidentally cut of by misusing a chainsaw, so he is way behind on his intended victims....Just kidding LOL
