Slowly creeping along
in the dark where no-one sees
these things are waiting
some are big
some are small
some are dangerous
and some are not
some are real
some are fake
but it'll only matter
when you wake
they go by many names
though some aren't very sane
they hide in all the places
you wouldn't really look
under your bed
in the closet
in the corners and walls
though most of all
they are found in your head
What are they?

answer: nightmares.

The End
