• Shades of grey I once knew so well,

    Circling me like starving wolves

    Getting closer,


    I don’t know what they want,

    Why they’re here,

    Circling closer,

    Ever closer.

    Make it stop.

    All the noises

    All the creaks,

    The groans,

    The moans,

    The screams.

    Make them all stop.

    Trembling, I cower in my bed,

    Covers over my head,

    I whimper,

    I plead.

    Suddenly it stops,

    Everything’s calm,


    Until tomorrow.
