Terror In The Night


No rock by baby, he comes to her again
In her sleep, this demon will once more upend
She's felt safe so long, this time he wears a new face
Her safe well being and feeling, he's out to erase

He comes to her this time, as a loved one, where she feels secure
He will terrorize her in her sleep, and try to cause her demure
This demon has come to her bed at night for so many years
In her life he never for long completely disappears

So she has to be on guard once more trusting no one
Because in any crowd, he could be among
The night time comes again with much terror from her past
She holds on so tightly, on her life he holds such a grasp!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
