Fear and Phobia

This tale was written for Fandango’s Dog Days of August #11

Today’s Prompt is: Something you Fear

Here’s what I came up with:

Fear and Phobia

What is something you fear the most?
A spider, darkness, needles or a creepy ghost

Ophidiophobic – snakes – venom, fangs but no slime
Dendrophobia – trees – which? Oak birch or lime

Spectrophobia – creepy mirrors – that’s one of mine
Entomophobia – tiny insects? Come on, you’ll be fine

Pogonophobia – fear of beards – I better shave!
Sexophobia! What? Seriously its real! Oh, do behave!

Triskaidekaphobia – thirteen – unlucky for some
Melissophobia – bees – they are scary when they hum

Acrophobia – heights – better not catch a plane
Aerophobia – yup planes – I’m not yanking your chain

Bibliophobia – books – any excuse to get out of reading
Haemophobia – blood – sure nobody likes bleeding

Nomophobia – no phone signal – oh the horror
Agoraphobia – open spaces – you’ll never be an explorer

Ornithophobia – birds – that’ll be Stephen Kings fault
Claustrophobia – tight spaces – don’t get stuck in a vault

There are hundreds of phobias a person can suffer
Weird or understandable a phobia can make life rougher

Face whatever scare you the most – head on
Fight and beat it and your phobia will be gone

So, what is something you fear the most?
Bats, fires, clowns or is it still the creepy ghost.


Thanks for reading my friends. As always there are more stories to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Short Stories tab and poetry here in Poetry Corner

Have a great day!
