Night Terror

The silence slips and the silence bleeds,

The silence flips and the silence screams,

The silence trips and the silence heaves,

Then I weep and the silence leaves.

The shadows leap and the shadows turn,

The shadows leak and the shadows churn,

The shadows sneak and the shadows yearn,

Then I peek and the shadows spurn.

The darkness bleeds and the darkness crawls,

The darkness creeps and the darkness sprawls,

The darkness weeps and the darkness paws,

Then I sleep and the darkness snores.
