Warm, welcoming, comforting
My home to sleep tonight
Relaxed, pleased, glad
Thinking there is nothing to fear

Peaceful, silence, stillness
No sounds that are heard
Calm, quiet, relaxed
Not a single word

Aggressive, agitated, aggravated
Out of nowhere comes a sound
Irritated, hostile, envious
I feared of who was around

Fearful, Restless, Terrified
The noise is getting near
Grumpy, cranky, nightmarish
My body fills with fear

Relentless, suspenseful, frightening
Getting goosebumps at the thought
Desperate, frantic, insecure
Out of nowhere, I was caught

The author's comments:

I was inspired to write this poem based on my love for horror stories and horror movies. I hope that you will see how it feels to experience a nighmare through imagery

Very well done. I do not know much about poetry but you had me excited and anxious to get to the next line.
