Silent scream

Lying in bed under my sheets
Something wakes me from my dreams
The floorboards speak
Suddenly I can’t breathe
My heart beat beats
Footsteps closing in on me…

    I hope you keep your feet up and arms in. That's my strategy. Thanks for the chills, Susan.

    Wow, this is a suspenseful write! i love the repeating of words, very powerful that way. You know, "...creak Creak,...beat beats..." that really emphasizes what it is you are trying to say and creates Fear in the poem! I really enjoyed what you have done here, very nice! Great Work!!
