This is how I felt last night...

Spider behind my eyes

Growing prickles across my everything

Fear has grown to a numb nothing

I know that I fear you

I know that I have always been afraid of your stare

Yet as I clutch Bear I cannot feel the fear I know is there

Just the unseen hair you make appear across my body

sprouting from hysteria

They tremble nerves across eyes

Sleeping the room turns into hallucinations

Each crowding over the next

To be heard above the roar of silence

You stare at me with fuzzy pinchers

Big black eyes staring so evenly

Twitching and sitting

I am so tired

But I want to turn the light on and make you go away

Yet when I fumble switches you are still there behind the membrane

Whoa. Different, no picture in my head just a dim feeling of getting a little scared of something smaller than in your head.
I do apologise my comments are not the greatest. I love this though, a creeping sensation reading it, maybe my hair itching me but once again brillient, different to what i have been reading latly.
