Fear (Sensory Poem)

Fear is the black void that overcomes the world around you at an unexpected time

It smells like the stale coldness of an extremely cold winter night

It tastes like the dryness of your mouth as if you have been deprived of water for days

It sounds like the calm before a terrible, dangerous storm

It feels like being paralyzed while forced to watch a loved one die before your eyes

It looks like a mouse cowering before a cat with no hope of an escape
