Fears In The Dark - Poem by Daniel Adams

You did that and over stepped the mark,
You knew I wasn't too fond of the dark.
Then you broke that trust and left me alone,
Left me terrified while you went off home.

I was trapped far far away,
In different places where I didn't know my way.
My body frozen, my hands had gone numb,
I screamed out your name but you never did come.

I hid behind a wall for about two hours,
So dark I couldn't see the grass or the flowers.
It's a miracle I wasn't heard or seen,
Should never have been there - I was only fourteen!

Darkness hangs over me like a ghastly dome,
I get nervous when it’s dark in my very own home.
Doesn’t matter how safe the area may appear,
I fear the darkness hiding what’s near.

That night will haunt me forever,
The fear of the dark will leave me never.
It tortures me in sleep like that of the nightmared,
But I have someone now who'll never leave me scared.
