There is no discernable rhyme pattern to this poem, it just rhymes where it happens to rhyme

Iím afraid, itís dark and the sounds
At night are soft and scary
Why is it night timeís monsters
Are so very big and hairy
Things like death and pain, the fear
Like something sitting on your chest
Stealing the very air you breath
Burrowing deep inside your breast
Daylight sends them scurrying away
With words so reassuring
But night brings them around once more
The nightmares reoccurring
With frightening accuracy they go
Right to the heart of things
Pulling terror from deep within
With bloody claws and bat-like wings
Go away I scream inside me
Daring though to make no sound
Hoping beyond hope that if Iím quiet
Danger will pass, I wonít be found
Where are my knights, my defenders true
When in the dark I cry and cringe
Why canít you come and save me now
From this edge of the lunatic fringe
From this Hell of doubt and fear
In which I find myself each night
Where are my warriors I wonder now
When with these terrors I alone must fight

Where are my saviours now I cry
Where have you gone, I wonder why
But deep inside I honestly sigh
I have already told them all goodbye

Fear is the key to nightmares. There is always some one to save us from our fears and or tears if only we really see. Thank God, I neve rhave nightmares, I said good bye to them before they ever came near me:) :)

Magnificent! You have capture the fear and anxiety so many of us feel when darkness falls and we can't see into those corners where shadows lerk. Well done. I could fell the skin crawling on my arms and the tingle climbing up my spine. Great Job!

outstanding how well you developed this poem ...
Reviewed by Felix Perry 2/17/2005
It takes a lot to admit to and face up to our fears alone and even more strength to conquor them but you are taking great leaps in doing just that on your own. Good luck and know that your friends on the den are only a keystroke away.

Very good and scary write. I've been to those places many times in my dreams. The best part is waking and knowing it wasn't real.

I agree Sue this is so realistic in what I dream about it is uncanny and you have certainly mastered this one.
