    I fear darkness.
    I am afraid of darkness.
    I am scared of darkness.

    Re: I fear darkness...

    All three are correct, but I would normally express it as "I am scared of the dark" or "I am afraid of the dark".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
