Now I Lay Me Down, But I Pray That I Don’t Sleep

Fear locks you in place

Steals your sleep

Traps you in the night

Takes you hostage

You forget to pray for an escape

So you face it head-on

Fear likes that

Feeds off your rush of courage

Your heart stops at the sudden sight of him

He moves faster towards you

Backing you into darker places

Tighter places

Burying you in terror

Until the morning light

Releases you

You open your eyes

But you know

There is no escaping

Fear will be waiting for you

To close them again that night
