Instead, I fear these four things:
1. Spiders (big and small)
2. The dark (that time of day without light)
3. Closed in spaces (elevators, closets, coffins)
4. Change (not coins, but things that happen to alter ones normal life)
I decided I would write a note to one of my phobias (I really need a pen pal).
Dear Dark (also known as: darkness, midnight without the moon, nighttime),
You have bullied me from a very young age. I imagine you entertaining those things that go bump in the night. I imagine your playmates are zombies, people who want to stab, oh and spiders. Your lack of light makes me shiver and distrust. Have you ever considered lightening up a bit?
You mock me with your noises. You trick me with the light of the moon then make it disappear behind a cloud. You are cruel with your howling and hooting from who knows where. You make my mind go crazy with images.
However, I must accommodate you in order to sleep. Without sleep, I cannot live. Therefore, Dark, I must learn to live with you.
Gotta phobia? Wanna talk about it?
