The Darkness

The twilight comes, its nearly time For darkness to fall - the fear is all mine Another night follows as sure as day Four hours sleep if I’m lucky I’d say! Look for excuses to not go to bed But I need my sleep let it be said. Up the long stairway I slowly move Not wearing slippers the carpets so smooth Into the bathroom, the nightly chores Now did I remember to lock all the doors? Into my bed, out with a book Maybe an hour, I’ll just take a look No more excuses, it’s time to lay down Up with the duvet and on with the frown Will I lay here for hours, just like last night? Or maybe this time it’ll work out just right!
