Limerick Challenge Week 40: Fears
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.
The fire burns very hot and so bright!
It still gives me such a terrible fright.
Burning building around me,
I was trying to get free.
The building I was caught in such a sight!
This is a true story. Horrified of fires since a young child. Couldn’t watch tv or movies unless they knew there wouldn’t be a fire. As a young adult I was caught in a building fire and though the fears had gotten less as I got older, the old fear and nightmares returned. I was not hurt in the fire, nor was anyone else. We were lucky. It was arson and since it was on a Marine Corps base we were all questioned by Naval Intelligence. (Now known as NCIS I believe. I know they changed the name years ago)
