Why Be Afraid Of The Dark
Author: Airtime 13


Dark fingers of the night
reaching out to touch.
Formless shade, yet forms
it forms. Misty figures that
most often are only in the
Most prefer the light to
Visions easily seen, more than
the shadows.
My fears run in currents
much deeper, than any light
could dispel.
Night holds no fears for me.

I loved your use of imagery in this poem, dark vs. light etc... and I think the line "dark fingers...reaching out to touch" really captures the sneaky nature of night, and the threatening sense of danger when something unfamiliar comes too near us. Awesome, just awesome.

Author's (late) thoughts

I have spent decades in the dark, but there may finally be some light ahead.

I see..

I understand the power of fears so deep that darkest cant scare you...
