What Lurks in There?

What lurks in there?
In the dark
where it's black and quite stark
creatures, shadows, beasts
waiting for someone
to become part of their feasts

What lurks in there?
The dark I still mean,
is it something terrible, ugly, and green,
or is it part of a corny horror movie
filled with vampires, dark and gloomy

When you look there, what do you see?
a cave of wonders or a depthless sea,
or are you similar to me,
scared of the frightening possibilities

Does your imagination run wild,
loose and free like a wayward child
or is it dry and bare
and only have space to wonder

What lurks in there?
