Someone said to me that people are afraid of the dark because they do not know what is in it, are you afraid?


We are all afraid of the dark
Because once we are covered in its
Sticky tendrils are fears become clear and stark

The monster under your bed
The thoughts inside your head,
They all want you dead

You scream and beg and cry,
But you know monsters don’t care about your tears,
They only wish to feed off your fear

You are paralyzed
And in your ear the monsters
Are whispering wicked lies

And then you realize
That everyone is afraid of something
So you uncover your blinded eyes and find a light so bright

The monster screams and writhes in fright
The question is
Will it come back if I turn off the light?
