Fears In The Dark

In the dark of night

My fears come alive

And play games

With my mind

The looming trees

Create moving shadows

That reach for me

The wind creates

Noises that move

Towards me slowly

A stray cat becomes

A creepy animal

That stalks me

I hurry up the steps

To unlock the door

And rush into

The safety of

My home
