Poem about fear. The things in the night!!!
The Horror

Paralyzing, crippling
it haunts me
Motionless I wait
for the beast to appear
Do I scream?
Do I cry?
Do I yell?
No! I hide

A silent tremor begins within
The savage is near
I quiver at the thought
I attempt to send signals
to warn the world of the demon
but no sound is noted

I feared the terror of the unknown
I lacked the courage to shield myself from the enemy
The end approached
Darkness shadows my vision
The monster lunges ready to attack
I'm a goner.
