When I was little, I had a problem with balance, I was always bumping into things and falling down the stairs. Now I have a more developed fear of stairs, because I think I'll fall to my death...strange...

Dizzy and nauseous
I'm feeling cautious
Grip so tight
I might lose blood

Visions keep me dazed
As I take the first step
Sweat runs
Temples pound
An overwhelming feeling
Of vertigo engulfs me

I close my eyes
And take the first step
I slip and slide gracefully into a coma
Only returning when
I have to take those steps again

I'd take a fear of stairs, especially if they lead toward a basement...sorely lacking here in Tornado Alley! My fear is storms. HUGE fear. I understand, believe me, that fear can overwhelm your life.

An excellently penned, taut write--well done!

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

Perfect love casteth out fear...:)
Treat those stairs like you are having a cup of tea...:)
