"Fear"

I can feel it rise
deep from within the recesses
of my brain
way back there
where I pushed it aside
long ago in my soul.
Every now and then
it comes again
like a forgotten enemy
from a long fought war.
One raged when young
and halted when older.
Where battle scars
are on the inside of
the emotional interior
of my heart.
You can not see them
but they are there.
Ever present,
even though they
have had time to heal.
Just like tonight
When I saw the cold stare
in two strange man's eyes.
The fear came again.
Pounding within my chest
burning with such fever
knotting my stomach
until I was nauseous.
I had thought
I had conquered it!
Thought it to be long dead!
Yet, there it was.
My fear of rape.

God bless you

 "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace." Elizabeth Barrett Browning

What makes a man put this kind of fear into a woman?  Very touching poem Cyndey.  Hope every man doesn't scare you like this...
