Afraid of the dark

Sjuut, it hears you.
Butterflies flying around,
it's inside your heart.

Please, get rid of it.
I cannot stand it's silence,
it's nothingness.

It brings no Eco,
it takes no colour.
Leaves me blind,
in my own mind.

It wraps like a blanket,
tucked against it's heat.
I feel the fear burning,

please, get rid of it.

I need to be free from you,
need nothing from you.
you leave me with blindness,
take away traces of kindness.

Please, get rid of it.

I feel all it's pain.
what is this symptoms:
fear of the dark?

I like the repitition of the "Please get rid of it," here. Very effective.

Hush it hears you...

Words like "wonderful" and "great" are not appropriate for this, although they apply so aptly.

The sadness, fear, hurt are all so effectively communicated here that it tears at the soul of this reader...

This is rich, and I think I know the feeling...I enjoy the repetition of the line.
Please get rid of it.
How to explain that 'it'...Oy!
Great job.
