Haunted Night

It’s dark in and out,

Candle doesn’t produce enough light,

I am sweating, bed is shaking,

A dead body beside me lies,

Through the window someone is peeping inside,

 

I get under the shawl,

As the dogs howl,

I close my ears,

Don’t want to hear the ugly owl,

 

Terror heaps in me,

As someone calls my name,

A hand is coming out from the picture frame,

 

Save me God, save me this time,

Get me remain alive through this horrible night,

I can’t stand at these demons,

I can’t even fight,

 

The hand gets disappeared,

But the calling my name, I still hear,

Drops of blood dripping on the bed,

I feel something flying over my head,

Wearing white clothes riding on a broom,

Flying all across the bedroom,

 

I lie there pretend to be dead,

Oh God, this thing doesn’t even have a head,

 

I am sure I won’t see tomorrow’s sun,

Should I just lie here or I run?

Horrified I am as anyone could be,

Its stretching hands reaching me,

 

Save me God, save me this time,

Get me remain alive through this horrible night,

I can’t stand at these demons,

I can’t even fight,

 

Kids like ghosts appear running on the wall,

There are more coming through the hall,

Blood is flowing all over the floor,

I wonder how many are there more,

 

My body shivers;

I can’t see them in the mirror,

Can’t find a place where I can hide,

It is surely going to be my last night,

 

It’s 01:00 in the clock when I open my eyes,

It was a bad dream I realize,

I am sweating and then bed starts shaking,

A dead body beside me lies,

And I see, through the window someone is peeping inside…

      Oh I didn’t say to not write it…I just never play with this stuff. I fear it far too much. You don’t need to apologize 🙂 My respect for you would never allow me to say..’don’t write this’ :)Carry on friend, I am totally fine.:)

    OMG I love this! I used to have waking nightmares where I would wake up but as I went about getting ready something would be really off/odd. Then I would really wake up but not really….. On and on until I screamed myself awake….I learned to go to bed earlier!

    1. Neeraj Kumar says:

      I know it well.. I too used to have such dreams when I was a kid.. I’m glad that you liked it! 🙂
