Where Does the Darkness Go to Hide?

Where does the darkness go to hide?

It isn’t in the light.

Perhaps in greater darkness still,

but that doesn’t seem right.

It watches from the corner

and it shivers as it cries.

Its heartbeat is erratic

and it breathes in heavy sighs.

Its eyes are large and terror-filled

by what waits in its gloom.

It quails in frightened silence

when the knock becomes a boom.

Where does the darkness go to hide?

It isn’t in the light.

Perhaps the living shadows there

will come for us tonight.

Oh yes, the silent shadows there

will reach for us tonight.
