I never lived anywhere that had roaches before..except once, on a short stay close to Houston, Tx. The experience was so horrific that it left me deathly afraid of them. I was in a home for pregnant girls called Teen Challenge and they crawled all over the bunkbeds at night, hundreds of them. So I guess I now have a phobia. Bad one!




Creepy, crawly
It's horror crawling
all over my floors
They stalk at night
Crawling all over the bed

Creepy, ugly creatures
It's fright night for me everynight
Once the lights go out
They are all about

Creepy buggers
They make my skin crawl
The thought of seeing one
terrifies me
Drives me beyond my limits

Creepy, disgusting
I can't sleep for fear
I awoke one night with one
running across me
I screamed and screamed

Creepy nights
My screams swallowed in the dark
My hearts pounding
Chills racing through me

Creepy horrors
It's more than I can bare
Up for nights now
Whether there be one or
three hundred
For me one is to many
Sleep forever eludes me now

The creepy crawly
Frightening horrors of the night
have me trapped in their might
I must keep watch
I spray all night
This all consuming fear
won't leave me

Creepy, irrational
They crawl through the night
The cats chase them
Play with them, stupid things
won't eat them
They leave them for me
Fear won't go
It seems now to be all I know

Creepy crawly
Horrors of the night
Continue to leave me in fright
My eyes scream for sleep
There is no release here to be found


Phobias are an irrational fear
but so real (I do plan to fog the house in a few days, I have to wait till I can do something with my pets though)
If you read my bio then you know that everywhere I have lived before here was cold country. Meaning...NO BUGS

You wouldn't live in Texas...would you? We have these huge roaches (although we call them waterbugs). GAD those things give me nightmares. I freak when I see them...thanks. If I don't sleep well tonight, it'll be your fault.

Chilling. Terrifying. EXTREMELY visual and well written.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *CRIIIIIIIIIIIINGE*

We don't have many roaches here; they spray every month, but once in a while, one'll get in, as will waterbugs (THOSE are even worse! GAD, GAD, GAD!! NIGHTMARE CITY!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!)!
