Tonight I am not scared of ghosts

or goblins or witches

I am scared of moving too far

but not leaving room enough

I am frightened of all my crazy dreams

and the things talked about too much

I am spooked of what is said in sublty

that really sticks to my mind

I am afraid of what is under my bed;

all the memories I will find

I am scared of getting holes in my teeth

and really scared of noise

I am frightened of all the heavy things

that don’t give me a choice

I am fearful and it is hard to grasp

that ghosts keep growing up

I am scared that I’ll feel lost again

before the sun comes up
