DARK MATTERS: ORPHAN

I was scared of the dark

I was scared of the dark

I was scared of the dark monsters

 

I hallucinated at night as a child

When everyone was asleep

I was in beds of bugs and beasts

They were real as day

Haunting in the night

I got out of the prison of my sheets

To flip on all the lights in my house

To walk slowly in circles

Until I  was so exhausted

I fell asleep in the hallway

Where I stood staring naked

Dreaming of flying and floating

 

I was scared of the dark

I was scared of the dark

I was scared of the dark monsters

I was scared in my last darkened childhood seconds

Where I still had no Mother or Father
