Midnight resounds with finality tones,
Zephyr reanimates restless bones
Creaky stairs outside my bed,
Spinning tales in my head.
The scrape of dry rustles creep,
closer to where I should be asleep
A dark forebodence, pragmatic doom,
Jiggling of the doorknob to my room.
maniacal laughter humorless glee,
The door creaks open, one, two, three
Knees knocking an intrepid tone,
Evil at play with two femur bone.
Clickity-clackity only a dream,
Terror possesses a stolen scream.
and if I should awaken before I sleep
I have unkept promises to keep.
Shadows dance in a pitched room,
Sealing me in a yawning tomb.
Florescent skeletons leech an arm,
Hush now they don't mean no harm.
A body like putty, I can't resist,
tearing flesh endlessly persist.
pray for deliverance if you must,
Maggots feast on a dismembered husk.
