Scariest Sight

The power’s out
and chill sets in
as darkness fights,
sure to win.
A scream fills air,
once silent and still,
as your heart skips,
secretly loving the thrill.
Monsters aren’t real,
at least not seen,
but monsters exist
in more than just dreams.
A full moon may warn
but still you won’t see
the ghost of yesterday
that never should be.
The scariest sight
is one you know well;
look deep within
at your own deserved hell.
