Treasure Island

Mel. D.


Dark Things


Dark things lurk in the dark;
They come out to play at night.
But I don't hide myself from them
Even though the monsters can bite.

Becasue, really, I'm not afraid of the night.
The darkness can be fixed with a flashlight.
I'm afraid of waking up in the morning
And having to go out into the daylight.

I don't want to have to face another day.
This is already too much for me to stand.
But I can't bring myself to tell a friend why
Or they might try to lend me a helping hand.

Dark things lurk in the dark,
But I don't try to put up a fight.
I will join in on their dance
And become one of them tonight.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
