Alone

Its so quiet here at night

I feel the weight of air press my ears

A constant hum broken only by fears

Jumping randomly from the black

To latch onto me and attack

My carefully built self confidence

Unitl it shatters and is absorbed

Every hopeful wishful word

Into this night’s dark maw

And as something nameless wraps its claw

Round my heart,all I can wonder in this instance

Is that dog barking in the distance

A warning I should heed?
