Spooky: Halloween

This post was written in 2 minutes.
On Halloween, I went for a walk in the woods, alone. I was very alert, and when I heard someone else coming nearer, I was afraid. I didn't see the beautiful scenery anymore, I only saw my own thoughts of what might happen. As it turned out, it was a nice elderly man who "followed" me and we even had en chat about the beautiful weather. So this was my "confronting my fears" day.

I'm not afraid of grinning pumpkins
or skeletons and such
The horror scene
of Halloween
does not affect me much

But a walk in the woods,
alone
where everyone I see
might be a threat, a murderer
that really frightens me
unnecessarily.
