I dunno, I was bored

A darkness lurks in every heart

Within the mind, body and soul

It comes creeping in and tears you apart

In a way that no one else can know

It comes out at the darkest hour

When we are all alone with no one to blame 

Menacing truths from which most would cower

This darkness has a name

A creature we all know well

The dakness known as shame

I liked how the text slowly got bigger. I don't know what that added to the poem but i liked it. Tiny typo in the last time with 'dakness', but that's okay. It sounds cooler like that, like a Jersey lady's saying it... dahhhhkness... I'm sorry I'll stop. Good poem.

XD it's okay, I wasn't looking at my screen when I typed it, so I'm surprised there was only one typo.
