Fear The Dark



The unknown is scary for those who fear the dark.
Some make up a fairy to traverse the arc.

The suspect is prickly for those who fear the dark.
Some amend as fickly to traverse the arc.

The arcane is ghostly for those who fear the dark.
Some assume it hostly to traverse the arc.

The formless is shifty for those who fear the dark.
Some grow a bit drifty to traverse the arc.

The hidden is dicey for those who fear the dark.
Some find a cost pricey to traverse the arc.

The obscure is murky for those who fear the dark.
Some look to be quirky to traverse the arc.

The unseen is stealthy for those who fear the dark.
Some regard it healthy to traverse the arc.
