In the Stillness of the Night

In the stillness of the night

oh how the wind will howl

and it will sound like a sound

from a monster's jowl

And you will hide away in fright

Under your covers in the night

In the stillness of the night

Shadows cover you

Ones of creatures lurking about

In your dreams they intrude

and you will shake in your bed with fright

Having a nightmare in the night

In the stillness of the night

You try to escape

But as you pass the window

you see a queer shape

Yet out the door you step with fright

Traveling into the night

In the calming thoughts of day

Birds chirp cheerfully

Yet all the sounds of the morning

are some how grim and full of dismay

Upon the floor of the wood your body lays

Dripping blood and still in the calming thoughts of day

Hey :) I thought the repition of night/night at the beginning and end of each stanza was pretty cool :) I mean, usually it would be kind of annoying, but it just works for yours. I love how the whole thing is all scary and haunting and then at the end theres that one sentence "Birds chirp cheerfully" :P

I really liked it! It was cool how you repeated in the stilness of the night and all the descriptive words you used!
