A Tale of the Night

Last night I had one of those where I felt restless throughout and didn’t get a good night’s sleep..... 

A Tale of the Night

My heart quickens 

Fear is heightened

I look behind

I see no one 

But there is someone there

Creeping in the shadows

Catching every breath I take

I hide in darkened doorways

Paralysed with foreboding

Footsteps resonate 

From nearby streets

Closer and closer

Twist or stick

Do I run

Or remain

In the cover of darkness

Confused and frightened

I stay perfectly still

Awaiting my fate

Is it too late?

Am I going to meet 

My maker?

Suddenly without warning

I am shaken 

From my slumber

Are you ok darling?
