"True terror is when you wake up and realize that your high school class is running the country."

Nighttime darkness holds me close
If I die now, all hope is lost
Gone are the days of spring and growth
Hope is buried beneath the frost
Tonight my heart is cold with fear
Life as I know shall be gone
Only love will disappear
Chastisement for what I've done
Kneeling before the darkness...

This is an Acrostic poem that sorta fell into my head. What is a nightlock, you may ask? I have no clue.
