Darkness

Pull the covers up a little more

Check the closet, just to be sure

"There is nothing to be scared of

Just go to sleep, my love

It is foolish to be afraid of the night"

Mother says, and usually she's right

But my fear is rational, mother is wrong

She's been lying to me all along

How can you find comfort in the unknown

In answers you've yet to find, questions you pose

No, I do not fear the absence of light

I fear the beings the darkness hides

The End
