The Darkness Creeps

By: Nervaniel

The darkness creeps,

The baby sleeps,

The darkness nears,

The baby fears,

The darkness lies,

The baby cries.

In the darkness, light lost,

In the darkness, life is lost…

In the darkness, pain is dealt,

In the darkness, pain is felt.

The darkness creeps,

The baby sleeps,

The darkness nears,

The baby fears,

The darkness lies,

The baby dies…
