As the Shadows fade and the sun rises,
I feel safe.
Safe from what the Shadows of night hold

I shiver with the thought of what i have endured.
I feel afraid.
Afraid that the monsters will come again.

As the day dawns bright I sleep.
I feel safe.
Safe from the horrors that the night holds.

I sleep a dreamless sleep.
I feel nothing.
Nothing from the dreamless sleep.

When i awake i see the sun set.
Fear consumes me.
Fear of what the night will bring.

I bolt upright.
I look around.
Look around and find that which i want.

I run to the cold gleam of steel.
I feel safe.
Safe because I now have a way to fight the Night.

If poetry is a reflection of what is in a person's soul, then I am afraid of what is inside of me.
