From Within

I sit in the dark

Watching the shadows grow

The slightest sound

Turns into encroaching terror

The cat jumps off the desk

And I know he senses the doom too

He is running to escape it

Leaving me in the swirling chaos

My breath sounds too loud

And my racing heartbeat echoes

The dim light of the streetlight

Shows the way for demons to follow

Leading them to my soul

To destroy me from within

In a surreal waking nightmare

Unable to escape their reach

They pull me into the shadows

Never to be the same


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – surreal
