A child quivers in fear as darkness overtakes a room
The primitive mind senses a danger lurking
The overwhelming fear of the dark shadows that lurk in the edges of our existance haunts us

Darkness is a monster that preys on the fear of its victim

Its power granted unto it through our mind
So is it not our mind that we should fear?
For when darkness overshadows us so desperate are we to cling to light

We do not like the unknown

The uncertainty

Our mind is left with a blank spot of possibilities

Left open to our imagionation to fill those spots

With the monsters we so fear
Our own minds have thus created the object of fear itself
A subconscious act of betrayal of our minds
