It's so hard to be brave sitting alone in the dark when every little sound can give you a start ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Then something moves and you know not why in your own mind you're sure you're going to die ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Is it a ghost or a demon or some other imp of hell or just your imagination sometimes it's so hard to tell ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Goosebumps run wild and your heart starts to race you are too scared to run the terror shows on your face ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ You hear it draw nearer then the scratching of claws you sit shaking in the dark awaiting that tooth filled maw ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ You squeal like a little sissy girl when you hear a hiss and a spat and the evil for which you wet yourself was only that darn cat ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ mkt 2017

Great write Michael, you really had me going til that cat revealed itself at the end. Loved your rhyme and flow as well as the dark images you drawn in.

Hello Micheal, you need to put a bell on that cat, so you know where the cat is. Have a nice evening my friend.

That darn cat! I love it! My cat has startled me many many times - not to the point of wetting myself, just to be clear ;) lol Always, Laura
