"Yesterday's history, Tomorrow's a mystery, TODAY is a gift, that's why it's called the present."

Dear God,

My room is too dark sir
And if I close my eyes, it’ll be even darker.
That’s when I see that man, standing, in my closet too.
He stands there, waiting, to say one word, “BOO!”

It’s scary, so please tell him to SHOO! Amen.
So there I was sleeping, not a soul could awaken.
UNTIL, the closet door swung open, and the floor boards started to creek.
I turned over to see him walking faster and stomping his feet.

He grabbed me
Aggressively shaking me

It can’t be…
It just can’t be.
Please God wake me!

..And that’s when I realized, it’s not what it seems,
But it’s just another one of those frightening dreams.
Dad, mom [shrugs shoulders]
Ahhhhh. [calmly]

I have a phobia and I chose to write about it, now you try to figure out what might my phob be.
