"You are the universe expressing itself as human for a little while." -Eckhart Tolle

The fall of night
sturs haunting uncertainties,
paranoia breathing down
the back of your neck.
Ghosts, monsters, and other unseen beings
swarm your thoughts
as horrifying scenarios play out in your mind
and scarring nightmares slash all ties
to reality.
The moon’s ominous glow floods your yard
capturing eerie, contorted branches,
and peeks through your bedroom window
forming mysterious figures
in the shadows it casts
over your head.
Your only defense a thin blanket,
your eyes are forced open
and all hopes of a peaceful sleep
slip slyly away
as darkness
looms over your life.
