'Fear Itself' (Original Poem 12/6)

Fear Itself - K.G.

I can't escape the fear within
Which darkens my heart and makes my head spin.
It flows freely through each vein
Like a poison claiming its final reign.
It's my friend, and enemy; 
 It knows the deepest depths of me.
It cloaks me in heaviness when I rise
And lurks like a secret behind my eyes.
I try to flee from it with haste
While it drags me in its wake like a cyclone's waste.
On the surface I appear calm and healed
But beneath the surface: A shattered visage battlefield.
Fear is its name, fear is its game. 
Who knew fear could bring so much pain?
