You look out of the window,
into the ghastly night
as Spooky winds blow
Hair erect,teeth clenching tight.
You look away into the comfort of your room,
it’s pretty warm and bright inside
But the lights go off soon and now you’re left in fright
you panic a little,ensuring the candle flame has also died.
That terrifying scene from the horror movie last night,
those stories of martyrs returning as ghosts your friends made during the hiking
yes,the ones you laughed off without a sigh
now,you give them a bit too much credit for your own liking
You hear a buzz all of a sudden
petrified,pale,you turn around to face death in it’s brand now form
your cold hands barely grasping the nearest object,turns out it’s a button
Nevertheless you turn around ready to strike
but you end up relieved as you see light
from a firefly burning for you far from its swarm.
It’s all calm now,you know you can make it through the night
the horror is over and you have to thank the firefly burning by your side
People go through worse you know,
nights dark and lonely
so shy not away from being the firefly they need
Burn a little,you might be their only.
