Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

October 10, 2007
By Masiel Bryson, Bronx, NY

Bats,
Leaches,
Flies.

You hear a scream,
Someone dies.

You are afraid,
With nowhere to turn,
Stay home where you’re safe,
Is what you’ll learn.

You sense death,
Preferably…yours,
Creatures are all around,
Ready to feast on your blood.

You can’t move,
You’re frozen with fear,
All you know,
Is that your end is near.
