    Mommy tells me to go to bed
    I tell her I don't want to
    I tell her there are things awaiting me
    Don't be silly, she says, there's nothing there
    No monsters, no boogie-men, now go to sleep
    So I go to bed
    I can see them outside my window
    I can feel them under my bed
    I can hear them in the closet
    I see their eyes, I hear their breaths
    I feel their hands
    They push me down, they hold me down
    They keep me silent
    I can feel them cutting
    I can feel them ripping
    I hear my skin, I hear my bones
    I see my blood, I see my gore
    I want to scream, I want to run
    But they hold me down
    I can hear them laughing
    And it makes me want to cry
    And as the sun comes up
    They all go away
    And I wake up
    I run to mommy, I tell her what they did
    Don't be silly, deary, mommy says
    We'll only keep a-comin'.

    many have nights where the fear come
    the demons come too
    but they are not real
    just whats inside you
    hope the medication
    can help keep them away
    i know they exist
    but only in ones brain
    someday the will go and stay away
    for that i too hope and pray
    for you and many others
