Friday the 13th

January 17, 2017 Dhiraj D

There’s something inside my cupboard
There’s someone beneath my bed
I tell my parents every night
But they say its all in my head


There are eyes staring from the shadows
And wicked whispering in the winds
I try to sleep by counting
But all the sheep have evil grins


There are claws dragging on the rooftop
Something slithers beneath the floor
I tremble under my blankets
And hope it is not a carnivore.


I hear them come towards me, silently one by one
They crowd around my bedside and then begin to sing:
“There is no need to fight nor is there any reason to scream
Because if we don’t get you in your bed, we’ll get you in your dreams!”
