FEAR OF DARKNESS

It takes familiarity
To derive comfort
in any person or pattern
It applies even to surprises
It takes few unpleasant
surprises
To learn to anticipate
every surprise to be more unpleasant
than the predecessor
And react lesser
Another child behind a door
springing a toy spider
Children abused at night
Fear darkness
It is not racist
Nor objective
There are those who cant sleep
over a quarrel
Hence prefer silence
Then there are those who cant sleep
till they quarrel
There are those who never sleep
Darkness is their constant friend
