Did you hear that?…
quickly turning round
as if speed would help
capture the sound,
to try to trace
the source of unease, as if something strange
had come to squeeze, the air from your lungs
as you catch your breath,
can sudden noise really scare
you to death?
You search for clues, did something break?
has a picture fallen for goodness sake?
Did a door slam, did the stairway creak?
you find nothing, though you still seek
for something earthly bound to cause
the way your heartbeat’s set to pause.
You check upstairs, downstairs too
you’re in a state, what should you do?
Then you see it, hiding in the shadow
icy fingers dig down to the marrow.
You try to scream but,…
‘twas only a dream for goodness sake,
you settle down and close your eyes
until suddenly to your surprise,
you hear a noise…
spin your head round,
to capture the source
of the unearthly sound…….
Déjà vu?….you feel it too?
