In The Dark - Poem by A.J.K Alexander

In the darkness monsters lurk,
hidden in the mist and murk.
Close your eyes and hold your ears,
hidden are your greatest fears.

Slimy limbs and big sharp teeth,
waiting on the floor beneath
the very bed where you do lie.
If you speak they may reply,
silly mortal soon you die.

Evil cackle, howling shriek,
every floorboard seems to creak.
Figures in the shadows form,
flashing in the midnight storm.

Silly child your parents say,
it's all those stupid games you play.
They plant these pictures in your head,
of razor claws and colours red,
now march your butt back into bed.
