It Scares Me

 

It scares me when I go to sleep at night.

I always feel like I am in a plight.

I potentially have to turn and fight,

And when I get up to turn on the light,

I look down the hall, but what I see's bare.

And then I lay as if without a care.

Look around, he's not there on a or chair,

But I realize we're breathing the same air.
