"Monsters are real and ghosts are real too they live inside us and sometimes they win"

~Stephen King~

The hallway is dark and empty
Long and lonely
A haunted silence hangs in the air
The hallway seems endless
I am walking a searching
Searching, hoping to find light
To find something anything to tell me that I am not alone
I hear the sounds of the building settling in the ground
I have been traveling for hours
Looking for the way out
Looking for light
Looking for the sign that humans still exist
I am afraid that I might be the only one left here
All the others are gone
I trip over my feet again and again
I feel numb and tired
I am shaking from exhaustion and coldness
The air seems to have a frigid bite to it
I see a staircase leading downstairs
I follow it
I get to the bottom and the air gets colder
I smell something terrible
I follow the smell
I find the room empty and a note to someone
It says:
If you are reading this it means that you are the last human here
I don’t know what happened
I don’t know how you managed to escape
All I know is that you are the last human here
This place has more evil and more danger then you know
Anybody can be lurking around waiting for you
So be careful and don’t trust anyone
Try to be our hero and find the way out
Sincerely the second to last human Anna
I put the note back where I found it and start to leave
I am the last human here
I need to find the way out
I run and run till I can’t no more
I fall to the ground
I look at the ceiling and pray
As I pray I notice that it is getting harder to breathe
My chest feels like something heavy is on it
Sitting on my chest so I can’t breathe
I sit up and see light up ahead
I get up panting and start walking
Forcing myself to walk
I go towards the light and find a door
I walk out into the world and collapse right there
I can’t breathe anymore
As everything goes black
I think I did it
I found the way out
I got out at a price
The price was my life

I was just goofing off and wrote this. I am sorry if it is not that good, it is one of my first tries at poetry.
