Dreadful Night

In the darkest of nights

cats cried out in alarm

and birds whimpered with them

forming a strange music

Trees stood unnaturally still

unaffected by the wind


I felt my bed shake

and a whisper in the covers

the voice of a ghost

asking for a place

amongst the living

Late at Night

The night I hid in the cover

The clock seemed to stop forever

Activities in the empty kitchen

Vessels tumbling at a fast pace

Chairs moved from their place

Left me in a daze

Movements in the empty bed

The ones I have seldom heard

Hard breathing near the pillow

Creepy clamour outside the window

Left me in a haze

Terrified to close my eyes

To look for the bright morning

When monsters get back to their hiding
