Dawn Piercy

Slipping through in

the night;

Frightening my child

as he sleeps

in the night;

Waking him,

they speak,

they tell my son

it is his

mother they have

come for,

it is her they

want to keep;

Yet,

it is his mother

that they fear,

so they frighten

him instead;

They are cowards

coming here;

I will lock them in

forever deep;

They crawl into

his dreams,

then he starts

to scream as

they ly

dead rotted bodies

at his feet;

He comes into my room

screaming;

If as he still is

dreaming;

He tells me

the shadow men came

for him,

slipping through as

spiders

slipping through as

snakes;

Wrapping him from

his feet

up to

his tiny face;

This is so

he may not

speak;

He crawls now

to

my bed at

night,

all I can do

is hold him tight;

He tells me

 they can not

enter,
