#16 Agyrophobia

there stood a flower
wayside of the concrete river
or a cobblestone brook
waiting to be picked

but how does one cross a river
strewn with boulders rushing
lives are to be lost
and a flower is to wither

Agyrophobia- Fear of streets or crossing the street

#15 Agrizoophobia

you’ve never been to my place
is what she said to him
while he nervously
quickened pace
gazing around

it is up
in the foothills
by the woods right?
he asked while his eyes
fixed upon movement up ahead

look!- she exclaimed and failed to answer
was that what i think it was?
she asked while she noticed
he had run off in the
opposite direction
of the little
bunny she
just
spotted

Agrizoophobia - Fear of wild animals

(Its been a while. I find myself inspirationless at times. I’m not at all content with this poem. The thing is though, that this project was meant to force me to write. I may not like this one but it still had me think about things and pick words. So yeah. Thanks for following, lovely people!)

#14 Agraphobia

intimacy
it’s not that it specifically
frightens me

it’s just the way
that- for example today

he looked at me innocently
but in his eyes i could see

him violently
crushing my delicacy  

#14 Agraphobia - Fear of sexual abuse

#13 Agoraphobia

a thousand faces
and twice as many eyes

drawing nearer is the moment
that i know inside and out

a thousand feelings
and twice as many doubts

aproaching the door to my house
i know its inside
i never stay out long

Agoraphobia - Fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places like markets. Fear of leaving a safe place.

#12 Agliophobia

a world of pillow and love
my dream is a world above
where the air has no edges
and where my body holds no grudge

against things that may touch it
and my brain will not turn it
into hurt
for i will float in pillow
and love

Agliophobia - Fear of pain

#11 Agateophobia

we all have issues
said her pretty voice
so don’t worry about it
please tell me yours
i would really like to know

but how does one explain
being afraid of something
that fear produces

the vicious circle
that is my life 

my fear of going mad
drives me mad
and i am so afraid of that 

Agateophobia - Fear of insanity

Special Edition: #10 Anatidaephobia

i follow little trails
into the depths of my brain 
and search for the one thing
that drives me insane

day and night
into the heart of my soul
i know something is watching me
and taking control

through the mist of memory
and the high toll of time 
there appears a familiar figure
it haunts me down the line

waggle waggle waggle
i hear it in my head
quack quack quack quack 
the syllables of dread

Anatidaephobia - The fear that some time, somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you.

 ( I recieved an e-mail from one Jake Slater who reccomended this phobia (which is not on the list). So thank you Jake, this one’s for you!
