Fear

In the night

In the dark

I see things.

Without light

With few sounds

The dark turns

To static,

Dots moving

In the dark.

In the night

My mind tries

Not to see

What the dots

Connected mean.

As a child,

Things I saw,

Gollum when

During nap

Time (in vain,

For no sleep

Passed with those

Visions of

Fear's demons).

Years later,

At an age

Nine or ten,

Goblins, trolls,

Didn't hide.

My mind's eye

Looked not far

Inside. And

Now I look

Out windows

In the night

In the dark

And see things

Moving bout

In the dark

In the night.

Freddy, bugs

Bring my plight.

In the dark

In the night.
