Daily Prompt – To Be Scared of the Dark

Every child knows what it is like to be scared of the dark.  As do many, adult still.  Some for more real reasons than others.  But, fear is an emotion not reason, right?

To Be Scared of the Dark
by Michael Romani

Footsteps
Creak in the darkness
Our enemies
Are here with their harshness
And all that is habitual
Every fetish, every ritual
Are locked in this madness
God has His plan
Permeated with our sadness
Even a hero knows
Regardless of how it shows
What it is to be scared of the dark

The night crawlers crawl
As we flee down the hall
With our faces white as ashes
We listen while something inside thrashes
The voices inside
Say there is nowhere to hide
Still we whisper our prayers
Sitting in semi-circles and stare
Outwardly into the night
Assembled in fright
Even the hero knows fear of the night
And stands guard until the breaking of light
