Whisper, whisper, whisper,
What is it that's waiting us?
Take a step back, darting eyes.
Creaking floors, screeching doors
louder, Louder, LOUDER
The silence presses into your ears.
CRACK! Then nothing.
CRASH! Then nothing.
Scram, Run, Grasp
The last bit of light, out of your reach
Grumbling, Tumbling, Clattering,
Fall to the floor, feel around in the dark.
Turn a little too late, eyes meet knife,
Towering shadow, moonlit face
Face of hatred, face of disgust.
Spit falls onto your smile.
Screaming of terror, Yelling of rage
But you and the corpse.
