In the Dark

by Riana Rivers

"thump"

The sound of feet in the hall?

The sound of the jackhammer in my

chest?

 

Where did it come from, this dark

feeling that steals my sleep?

What is this thing that makes me

fear the breeze?

 

Did you see that? A shadow moving

across the wall! "thump" Did you see the way it

looked at me?

 

No one sees. "thump"

No one but me. So I sink under the covers.

"thump, thump"

Wishing it away. "thump"
