A young boy struggles to go to sleep do to a fear of the dark.

Once at night
I felt a great fright
Froze in bed
Eyes becoming red
Hearing sounds
Heart begins to pound
Eyes close shut
I feel a soft touch
My fist clutched
I look behind me
It was he
My very own shadow
I breath slow
He ask why so scared
I'm just fear
I say why stalk behind
Don't you mind
He say you look back
That's what attracts



I begin to realize
Why he spies
He doesn't exist
My brain twist
My eyes are open
I awoken
Don't look back at fear
It sheds tears
Bravery overcomes
And overruns
