I’m Afraid of the Dark is a diverse and dark work of original, free verse and lyrical poetry. The poems articulate on a variety of subject matters, but devote a particular interest to suicidal ideation, depression, loss, and abandonment. With poems such as With the wind my troubles blow, Let the dreams begin, and Just let me die, this book forms the cumulation of years of writing poetry and even more years of pain felt by the author.

Blaque Lyric wrote I’m Afraid of the Dark as an expression of art, and to convey his voice to the world. He came to CreateSpace to be in command of the publishing process and found CreateSpace’s Print-on-Demand tools to be fast, easy and, most important, free.
