By Elliot B 

It’s a purple scar 
Carrying all of your thoughts and doubts 
With you. 
It is 8 o’clock in the morning 
On your first day at school. 
Like winter frost, it chills your body 
To the very bone. 
It’s a dull percussion triangle  
reverberating in your head 
blurring all your happy thoughts. 
It’s like an old, leather sofa: forever rotting 
Just asking to be thrown away. 
Like a millipede, every segment of it 
Describing your worries. 
It’s a putrid smell, tearing through  
The walls of a derelict house. 
It makes your hands shake, 
you feel as if your whole world 
is crumbling. 
It is a taste that will never be forgotten. 
By Jonathan C 

Fear is jet black, 
It’s the void where it seems nothing,
but everything is there, 
everything, all and everything. 
Fear is the forest,
a green canopy with
the dark base unknown,  
Unknown, completely unknown. 
Fear is midnight,  
When the clocks strike twelve
and you can see nothing,  
nothing, nothing at all. 
Fear is October, the day of the dead 
The day, the day of the dead. 
Fear is the cold, the freezing;
so burning and burning so freezing 
Burning, burning so red but freezing. 
Fear devours the soul,
but the soul welcomes it with cold open arms.  
Cold, so cold
By William H 

It’s sickly yellow like cold, lumpy custard. 
It’s the morning alarm,
ordering me out of bed. 
Like damp rain at a summer picnic,
it spoils everything. 
Like a giant sloth casting a dark shadow
on the forest floor,
this feeling is casting its shadow over me. 
It’s a broken music box,
with its dancing ballerina 
No longer able to twirl. 
By Misha P 

It’s a vulgar green colour, eating up your spine. 
An ear-piercing scrawny sound, 
Ruining your life, bit by bit. 
Unpredictable mornings in cold, bleak February, 
The dismay of your Valentine date. 

It’s an odd sheep getting glared at for its misery and 
Preposterous behaviour. 

It takes every part of your body  
and turns you down a horrible route, 
seeking revenge every day 
and wants you to fulfil its desire. 
It changes your feeling 
To envy 
And makes you seek revenge. 
It starts a new world for you.
