In Darkness

A light
On for me.
I fear darkness
And all it’s shadows.
My mind plays tricks on me
When I can hear but not see
My senses heighten, I’m afraid
Please don’t leave me here alone tonight.
I hear you breathe in the silence
You whisper my name aloud
I feel your presence near:
No-one hears my cries
The darkness calls,
Please leave one



About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    The power of one little light is amazing.
    Lovely poem 🙂

    • Thanks Sci. I’m not comfortable in the dark as noise seems to amplify. We keep a child’s night light on in the bedroom for Maggie as her eyesight isn’t as good as it used to be and she finds it difficult to judge distances (she missed the bed one night and hurt her shoulder when we were at MSM). I confess I do find it reassuring.
