Regrets

Written by: philip souza

All alone in the dark 
I hear ghastly screaming 
Unaware if it’s in here 
I pray I’m only dreaming 

Fumbling with the light 
I quickly look to see 
The skeletons in my closet 
Are staring back at me 

I can hear their pain 
A faint hollow sound 
Affraid they’ll never fade 
And decide to stay around 

Back to haunt my life 
I can’t escape their hate 
Another sleepless night 
Spent dwelling on my fate
