I fear dark,
the night that haunts me.
Many faces, none familiar;
teases me, frightens me
all terrifying, none friendly.
when I see them approaching towards me,
without my say-so.
Noises of pebbles rolling;
with those, I was playing a while ago.
The hands hitting the wall;
the wall, I was resting a while ago.
Someone calling out my name;
by the voice, I’ve never heard in my life before.
I run away.
Far enough that I convince myself.
I cannot catch the sight of him
when I turn around.
Still, I can sense him
through my unenlightened heart.
When the sun hits my body,
my enemy seems to fear me now.
Making my naive heart to realize
that it was just my consciousness.
