A stream of light

Through a door ajar

It pushes in

Though not too far


An eerie glow

To charge the dark

To shroud its bite

And swell its bark


A terror now

Is fostered here

The tingling touches

The blackness leers


Something lurks

Poised to pounce

As your fear festers

Ounce by ounce


The still of night

Chills so within

Each subtle noise

A frightful din


Cocooned in bedding

Devoid of sight

With a thundering heart

You endure the night
