Are You Afraid of the Dark?


Are you afraid of the dark?


If you are,
run far far away
because light
left this place long ago.


If you are not afraid,
welcome to the darkside.


My soul is as black as they come,
covered in soot,
crusted with ash.


So if you're expecting
constant smiles
and positive thoughts,
look elsewhere.


Can't say I didn't warn you.
