Don’t be afraid of the dark.
Be afraid of the things in the dark.
The things in the dark are monsters
They have razor sharp claws
and rows of jagged teeth.
Some run really fast, some fly
and some swim.
Many are furred, but some are scaley,
or wet and slimey things.
They don’t all hunger for a taste
of your flesh.
There are those that only desire
the taste of your blood.
You cannot escape them,
they can hear your heartbeat.
There is nowhere to hide,
they can smell your fear.
I am not afraid of the dark.
I am not afraid of the things in the dark.
To them, I am the thing in the dark,
and they are afraid of me.
