When I was kid

When I was kid

I was afraid of the darkness

The most of all

I couldn’t close my eyes

Besieged by craziest fantasies

I turned the light on

And here I was: face to face with my nightmares


Now that I grew up(didn’t expect to be alive at such age)

I have to let my fears go,

Grown up life is too boring to be afraid of monsters under your bed

But I have a secret

(My therapist calls it disorder but

I was always ruining the order)

I have a secret friend

He only comes at night

So I still sleep

with light turned on

In order not to miss him  out.
