Terror By The Night (Poem)

I felt the stranger there lurking in the night

Amidst the shadow’s glow

The moonlight couldn’t know

The terrors it might sow

There midst the fog of the night

-

Oh is there someone please listen to my plight

In bed at home alone

Afraid to reach the phone

In touch with my unknown

Trapped in the snare of my plight

-

It was the terror by the night

Created out of my own plight

A vision hidden from my sight

Created for my own delight

-

I know its waiting there somewhere out of sight

The tension that it owns

To take its final toll

What is it that I owe

Made me the key of its sight

-

Why can’t I stop this please what is its delight

To put my soul in tow

A face that couldn’t show

My ending soon to know

Shared in some stranger’s delight

-

It was the terror by the night

Created out of my own plight

A vision hidden from my sight

Created for your own delight

What kept coming to my mind is "You shall not be afraid on the terror by night" from the Protection Psalm (91); but here it is being afraid of one's own thoughts. Good poetry!
