Flickering lights, an unusual fright Sitting alone Scrolling through my phone
A curtain shifts in the moonlight A door creaks closed, a breath of wind I suppose Window left open, I'll go close
Wham! the door slams open seemingly on its own Shattering lights, pitch black A scream so loud, my mind about to crack I scamper for a door, futile in my attempt to escape Black eyes impossibly stand out in a already black house Fear holds me from releasing a tear A dark figure, claws twisted, rippling muscle pure white teeth glistening Run screams my mind, legs a failing One step, two steps, three Looming above me a crooked smile forms on rotten lips It has me in its grip
Open my eyes, heart rate raised I feel completely dazed A nightmare of the crazed
Gripping story of a nightmare similar to one I frequently have, I enjoy narrative poems and I hope you can enjoy these also.
