Scared of the dark

Like a knife it slices thin.
Slowly like a full blade.

The pain felt through out the body.

And ever bearing abundance 
That will never go away.

Inside you'll scream.
You'll cry.

Hoping and praying this pain
Will forever go away!

But in your heart you'll know 
No such remedy exists.

Crouch down. 
Hold yourself.
Rock back and fourth.

It won't save your soul.

Won't protect you from what you 

Even then it's the fear
Of fear itself that kills you.

The fact of not knowing what to
Be afraid of and what not.

It clouds your mind 
And their for clouds your thoughts.

To overcome this 
Is to court strength into 
What is visually unknown.

To put aside all that cause
You to break down and cast
Off all emotions.

To be free... As you will
Is to be heartless.

To not feel anything at all.

So that when these nightmares 
Come back you'll be awaken
Not of fear but of full rest.

Only thinking you've done your best
To cloud the monster that lies
Beneath your mind.

Just itching for every way to get 
Leaving you but a pile of ash,
That was too scared to protect
Your own ass.
