I wake,

with a scream. 

The images,

they won't leave. 

I take a deep,

breath.

I tell myself,

It's only in my head.

But then,

I hear

the floor boards,

they creak.

With weight.

I sit,

I don't breathe,

I'm still.

The steps don't stop.

They stop outside my door.

I don't move from my position.

They move away,

I sigh a silent sigh.

I hear the squeak of hinges,

From the room across the hall.

I listen,

Nothing.

Then I hear it,

A piercing scream.

Full of pain, 

before it is suddenly cut off. 

Then a different scream.

Now it's silent.

I'm shaking. 

I suddenly hear the quiet

sound 

of footsteps,

walking my way. 

I can't breathe.

The doorknob twists.

My door opens,

with a surprise visitor,

right behind it. 

My mind is screaming,

before my mouth even opens.
