The erotic nature of storms
, a rebuttal
I have a strange phobia
. A nightmare affliction
, if you will. I am afraid of lightning
. Deathly afraid. Paranoid
, shaking, freaked out
Sounds pretty funny
doesn't it. I know it doesn't make sense. I know the odds of getting hit but lightning average about 14 million to 1
(I looked it up
). I know full well that it is an unfounded fear.
It doesn't help.
Somewhere in my ancient lizard hindbrain
equals death. I can feel the crawling fear building when the thunder
roll in the distance. Raw
Storms are my personal torture, every summer for months on end. I wish it filled me with the thrill and desire that it seems to give others. It fills me with only terror
