In the dark

Standard

I stare

Quiet into the darkness

Not searching

Not looking

Eyes never adjusting

Quietly sitting

Listening for movement

Was that a noise?

No, my own breathing

Is that a noise?

Foot steps maybe?

But I am alone.

A brush against my feet.

Alone!

Quietly

No moving

Heartbeat quickening

Get up and go to the door

The door that is no longer in front of you

Oh dear

Just me

Alone

With my fear
