a nightmare

The sky clouds over and rain pours.
Lightning cracks and thunder booms.
A candle flickers by the door.
Shadows are cast around the room.
A shadow looms by the door.
Heartbeat is pounding, fear mounting.
Dreadful monsters hide in the dark shadows.
Is everything as it should be?
Fear is creeping up, drowning all thought.
A furry creature runs by.
A cackle from a witch is heard.
Is she on the second floor?
Ghosts fly about in the house.
A hanged man swinging by a rope.
Dracula rings the doorbell.
Bats are flying about in the rafters.
The candle flickers and dances.
Waking from a nightmare dream.
The house is still dark and scary.
The candle has burned out by new.
Power has flickered on.
The storm has died down.
The sun is shining through gray clouds.
The dream has vanished like smoke.
