An extended claw
from the darkness
a lick of the tongue
the beast lives.
Gargling venom in its throat
the gnashing of teeth
sharp like a razor’s finest blade
Beware the vacant stare
it will paralyze you
stop you in your tracks
steal your dreams.
a black heart that does not beat
yet it breathes
heat seeking breath of foulness down your neck.
a million and one screams
it feeds on your thoughts.
sweat-soaked and terrified
then you turn on your light and realize
it was just an illusion
cooked up in a dream
no more real than a silent scream.
