The lights flickered out
Darkness surrounded me like a blackout
As I drifted off into a deep, dark sleep...
A shadowy figure began to creep.
Fur on my face, was what I could feel;
Eight hairy legs but were they real?
Lips began to tremble, body began to shake,
Shaking so much it was like an earthquake!
A feeling of panic, a feeling of dread.
An eight-legged creature covered my head!
Peeling open my sticky, dry eyes,
Awaiting for me was a spine-chilling surprise...
A tarantula! My worst ever fear
An ear-splitting scream made it disappear...
