SHADOWS ON THE WALL

Ben-

Sensitive child.

Fear of the night.

Fear of the nomlies.

Why were you so afraid?


Ben-

Sweet child, my brother.

Shadows on the wall.

Shadows in your mind.

Imaginitive shadows.


Ben-

Thoughtful child.

Stories in the night.

Stories of terror.

Were they stories to you?


Ben-

Crazy man.

Genetics gone wrong.

Or was it you?

Something gone wrong.


Ben-

Sensitive.

Afraid.

Sweet.

My brother.

Imaginative.

Crazy.

I love you.

I miss you.


Ben-

In the Good Place now.

Where no one gets punished.

Where no one gets yelled at.

Where you can sleep in forever.

No one is afraid,

No one wants to hurt you,

You don't have to worry,

And nobody dies.


Ben-

My friend.

Too beautiful to be cursed.

Don't worry.

Sleep.

There'll be no more tears or fear or pain now.

No one's going to yell.

No one's going to hurt you.


Ben-

My brother.

Just sleep now.

That's my gift to you.

My fault.

I'm sorry.

I didn't see.

I couldn't see.

You had your own world.

You saw your own shadows.

But you can sleep now, Ben.

They're gone.

You're gone.

Just sleep now.

No one's going to make you get up.
