I dread the night. Horror

The darkness reaches out its cold arms

Pulling me into an embrace of pain. Terror

Pain in my body

Pain in my mind

Please don’t rain the pain on me tonight

I dread the fear and its slithery fingers

Piercing into my skin with claws so sharp

Digging into my flesh with steely fangs

Breaking down my walls. Defenceless.

My mind is a dreadful web

And I’m trapped in it

Can’t move

Can’t feel a thing. Numb

Please don’t allow the dread drain me tonight

Take the pain away

Make me the fearless girl I see in my dreams-

Make me the me I see in you
