I heard it calling in the night.
Saw its breath in the chilled wind.
It began coming closer and closer.
I heard the scratching of nails across the window.
An eerie spine chilling sound filled the room.
Looked for a way out, but I could not move.
Frozen with fright unable to scream
I felt its rage reaching for me.
Then darkness fell across the room.
I sat straight up, palms sweaty unable to catch my breath.
Cool perspiration ran down my back.
Looked around; needing to find my senses.
Relief sets in, my head begins to clear
it was a nightmare….wasn’t it?
