My Fear, A Secret

The prompt for this week is ‘Fears’. Identify one thing that you fear, a phobia you hold and write a limerick based on that fear or about the ways that phobia secretly thrills you.

Hahahaha, nope!

What do you take me for, a simpleton? I have a general distrust of humanity in general, and you want me to tell the world? Well, how about this:

My Fear, A Secret

Why would I tell you my fears,

subjecting myself to your jeers?

If I tell you my weakness,

or expose my secrets,

I tell you: it will end in tears.

Inspired by the Limerick Poetry Challenge Week 40
