I dread stealthy darkness, sneaky darkness

Smothering silence is what you got with darkness

Loneliness lurking through evening till morning

Nightmares roaring, insomnia tossing turning

Warring and wiggling, crying and moaning

Waking up writhing in drowning darkness


Mystical cats leaving while dogs soundly stirring

Heavy heart heaving while reddened eyes watering

Tired weary body, almost a zombie

Thinking and blinking, gasping and grasping

With stealthy darkness, sneaky darkness

Stressing to go to sleep in drowning darkness
