What was that?
My body is frozen
As I listen,
My ears strain in the heavy
It was nothing,
It was a mouse,
My body goes limp.
My breath is forced
Out in a gusty sigh.
I close my eyes,
Trying to fall prey
To my exhaustion.


My eyes fly open,
My heart is about to jump
Out of my chest!
My body is rigid
And I am holding my breath to the
Point of explosion!
The silence is dreadful.
I take one last breath,
As my door
Slowly is pushed open.
And wait, as
The shadows call.

I know exactly what you mean! <;D
And I love the last line--it just rings on in your head forever!
