In the dark I lay down and close my eyes,
I try not to listen to the demon's lies.
I am paralyzed and frozen from the fear,
Is that a dark figure holding a shear?
I pile up blankets and pillows for protection,
A scary beast lurks near with a creepy flexion.
I attempt to force these images from my mind,
As a creature crawls above with a snake twined.
I wake in the new morning feeling
