Breathing hushed, huddling still in bed
Under covers, my shield against shadow
Safe from all the things I don’t know
Though it can’t stem the tide of dread

I feel it here, yearning silently every night
My shield is shaken with its soft caress
Left alone in the shadows to obsess
Whispering to me all its hate and spite
