Making Friends With Fear

I've made friends with fear
And have gotten to know its root
Traveling through a bloodline
Like a virus that thrives
Ready to attack at anytime
I can feel the poison running through
Making my heart beat so loud
Feeling it down to my feet
It's more complicated than a cold
This creature of known origin
Making its home inside
The body mind and soul
An unwanted house guest
Throwing wet towels on the floor
Waiting for someone else
To clean up hopelessness
In an unmade bed
Making deals with fate
