The dentist

Foolishly I reassure myself,

there is nothing to fear.

Again and again I repeat this sentence,

silently praying that it comes true.

But there is this tiny, growing feeling inside me,

ever nagging on my mind.

Can't sleep. Can't eat. Can't think.

Still I know there is nothing to fear!

Why am I shivering then?

The day finally came,

I cannot move, cannot speak.

His mighty figure looms over my body.

Frightened I give in to despair once the first tear falls...
