Alone in a house

Written by: Ryan Jackson

It's a full moon,
and a eerie night,
alone in a house, without a single light.

You think something is there,
in your room,
lurking in the shadows,
you are doomed.

Your mind says run,
and your soul wants to scream,
fear has got you,
now it seems.

Your breathing gets heavier, 
and you don't know what to do,
not knowing what that something is,
will get you soon.

You hear a footstep,
move towards you,
your body backs away,
mind shattered in two.

Now you realize, it was all in your head,
those scary moments, your thoughts dread.

Alone in a house,
what it can do,
make you see things,
that aren't true.
