100 Word Challenge – Fear

Another challenge from Velvet Verbosity:

A knot settles in the gut, burning and twisting ever tighter even as tendrils reach out to infiltrate the rest of the body. They quickly climb the spine with icy fingers and tighten around the lungs. The heart beats harder and quicker against the invasion, the extremities tingle. Will you embrace it as a friend’s counsel and step through the door to fly free with heightened awareness? Or will it possess you, weighing down your body, freezing your soul, paralyzing your sense of self?  Master or slave — the choice is yours my friend, as it is for us all.
