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.
Have a great day!
