A creature stalks through the night

The Creature

Drip, Drop Drip, Drop The leaky faucet runs

Tick Tock Tick Tock The shadowy clock sang

Swish Swish Swish The trees move without wind

Clip, Clop, Clip, Clop The sound of hooves approaches

Caw Caw Caw The birds call, only to be silenced

In, out, In, out A hot breath forms a cloud

Bark, grr, bark, grr The dog growls

Shh, Shh, Shh, Shh A finger is placed to its lips

Whine, Whine, Whine The dog is quiet

Creak, Creak, Creak It makes its way inside

Creak Creak Creak Down the hall, it stalks

Groan, Creak, Groan, Creak It approaches the door

Tap Tap Tap It's finger against the door frame

Click Click Click The door is opened

Ba-dump Ba-dump Ba-dump A single heartbeat

Step Step Step It draws closer

In, Out, In, Out A rhythmic breath

Cough, Cough, Cough The breathing stops


Woosh Woosh Woosh The window flies open

Rush Rush Rush It flies through the opening


Drip, Drip, Drip The faucet cries

Tick, Tick, Tick The clock sobs


Beat, Beat, Beat The heart slows

Silence, shh

The heart stops

It beats not more
