They come in the dark
Slinking, slipping,
through the feeble barriers you’ve put in place.

They’re clad all in black
Blending, waiting,
crouching silently with their sinister grace.

They know just what to say,
Laughing, lying,
Pulling you in with a smiling face.

They’re the ultimate liars,
convincing, persuading,
Making you believe that you’re safe in their embrace.

They attack when your guard’s down,
Slashing, cutting,
Ripping up your dreams til their shredded as lace.

They come from inside you,
Lurking, Hiding,
They are the darkness that you encase.

Felt like their should have been more.. But well written. :) You captured your theme well! I can't critique the actual structure though because limericks aren't my forte..
