I blink once,

an hour passes.

I blink twice,

hardly a second has gone by

The silence creeps into my ears, whispering.

I blink thrice.

Out of the darkness,

faces,

twisted and disfigured,

stare back.

Eyes darting back and forth,

Their blood stained hands reach forward.

I cover my face,

but you can't hide from imagination.

Are you afraid of the dark?


The author's comments:
Inspired by my fear of the dark, or more accurately, the unknown.
