It is dark,
The air smells of burning flesh,
I am alone but two hearts beat,
In the shadows waits another.
Pointed teeth glisten into a blood thirsty grin,
Breath comes out jagged,
Jagged like the bones at my feet,
My throat is choked.
I hear it laugh,
Nearer it comes,
Ready to feast on warm, bloody flesh,
The laugh strikes something within me.
It sounded so familiar,
But no time to think for I must flee,
The thing approaches closer and closer,
I hear it breathing.
Each breath matches my own,
I run to it, turning for a glimpse of my pursuer,
Here it comes.
Out of the shadows emerges...
It sounds like a scene from a horror movie where someone is trying to escape from the monster who is try to kii them. Good job and I look forward to reading your next one.
