Afraid of the Dark

Afraid of the Dark

The night was bitter, the air was acrid, and crept through my window and invaded my senses. They hide away in the shadows, I feel there eyes burning through me while I sleep, twisting in my sheets.

I wake at the sound of my own screams and glimpses of figures scurrying out of my line of vision. The candles light my only refuge, the flickering bouncing off the walls triggering a feeling of dullness, exhaustion.

They watch as I pass back into the darkness, they wait for it to slip over my eyes. My body accepts the transition; my mind awakens sharply with horrid reminders of the dream that woke me.

A name, I should not say, a name that won't leave my mind. No real way of being there, never read, never heard. Even to think it draws something wicked closer to me.

I surround myself with the white light, concentrate; her words came back to me. A shield of light that is suppose to keep the darkness at bay. Nothing is as simple as it sounds. The light was dull, and dead. Thoughts of light had already had been conquered by a secret vile name.

Shadows do more then play tricks on a startled mind.

Sometimes we travel to strange places in our dreams.
