Creature of Darkness

I wake up breathing heavily,

In utter shock and horror.

My eyes take a while to adjust to the darkness in the room,

Something makes a noise,

Pensive, I look around the room,

Hoping the dream,

Or rather a nightmare,

Isn’t coming to life.

While I assure myself,

Breathing in deeply,

The creature outside my window,

Leaves me screaming without my voice.

Until I really wake up,

Noticing the darkness around me,

Breathing heavily,

This time, avoiding to look outside the window.
