Wake up at night then, from the porch there is a thump,
Then from the stairs, a bump.
You look up from your single bunkbed
And see icy-blue eyes staring back at you.
The man steps closer to you.
You open your mouth to scream
But no sound comes out.
The black-haired, pale white-skinned
And lifeless-eyed man comes closer.
You must deal with your fears eventually
So take deep breaths and close your eyes
Then fall back asleep…
