A poem about a fear of the dark.

I like the way my eyes will sting

when I keep myself awake.

I like the way my mouth goes dry

while chewing on escape.

I like the way my basement crawls,

the scratching at my door.

I like the dark that chokes on me,

the fire for my floor-

the eyes that always see...

I like the emptiness in here

and what becomes of me.
