Out of the darkness

Nightmares can be scary, and whilst this one woke me up, in the daylight and from what I can remember of it, it is totally ridiculous!

Desperate, tentatively turn on the light,
Bathroom in shadows,
Creeping, moving.
Light bulb swings casting eerie glow,
Red eyes reflected.
Frozen, unable to move,
Located, targeted, pounced upon.
Eight legged monster
In hobnail boots,
Kicking, pounding,
Weaving into hair,
Web covering face,
Stifling, sticky,
Hands swat the creature away,
Wake up screaming,
Shaking, frightened,
Caring hands soothe,
Calming, loving,
Rest on cool pillow,
Eyes close,
Sleep returns
Empty of monsters.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
