Nightfall

Do not fear the dark  
as I have done.  
The sinking sun  
and gathering shadows  
don't mean any harm.  

Although in my heart  
I know sunrise will come  
and that winters will end,  
a blueprint on my brain  
since before I made  
conscious memories  
associates nightfall
with trouble and fear.  
 
For me, dark begets dark,  
which is too hard to handle.  
I'm beginning to realise  
why I never wanted nights out  
and preferred to stay in.  
Still, there's nothing to fear;  
the problem isn't nightfall—  
it's me.
