Fear of the Dark

Hiding under the covers

In fear of the absence of light

How intimidating am I

With skin the color of midnight?

For all the reverence my essence instills

Shining like rivers in moonlight

Frightens like no other and promotes ideas of flight

The darkness

Mysterious and

Vilified

Until you shine your light and see

eyes and smiles so bright

No need to fear the night
