12 o'clock at night,
I saw the shine of his light
There was a creature creeping up on me
As black as coal was he.
My heart pounding like a heavy, bouncing ball,
Its shadow menacing and tall,
My body trembling with fear,
As the beastly creature drew ever nearer.
I pulled my duvet over my head,
Until the monster had passed my bed,
Deathly silence filled the room,
I shuddered, frightened in the gloom.
I dared to look, a little peep,
Right above me the creature stood,
Reaching out for…
Hand on my shoulder awakens me from my sleep.
