The Dark

S C Richmond

Fear creeps as you lie still in the dead of night,

it works it’s way into your bones and up your spine,

nerve ends tingling and stomach churning.

The dark amplifies your emotions and all things bad live in the gloom.

You wait knowing in your soul that the light will win out eventually

still you feel the fear, there will be no sleep, no comfort.

The bad things will come if you succumb to their charms

and fall into their false comfort of sleep.
