Eyes close

by Victoria Ramey   Apr 28, 2019


Lay down,
Go on,
Keep your eyes closed,
Hear those,
Creatures outside your window,
Breathe tight,
Dont let the others know,
You're shakin,
Skin drippin like the melting world we know,
They're creepin,
Scraping their claws up on the ceiling,
They're revealing,
Who they are and what they know,
Silent screaming,
Escape your clenched lips as,
You're bleedin,
From your nails digging into flesh and bone,
Lay down,
Go on,
Keep your eyes closed,
Hear those,
Creatures outside your window,
Breathe tight,
Dont let the others know,
Your nightmares,
Come alive when your eyes close.
