The Thing in the Dark
Last night I was in my bed,
when I felt something tapping on my head.
Then I stood up and looked around,
but I didn't see anything,
I couldn't hear a sound.
I was scared and didn't know what to do
then I saw a shadow,
was it you?
I saw one gleaming eye,
it looked at me,
I started to cry.
Then, all of a sudden,
I heard it growl,
but that was not as frightening
as when it began to howl.
I saw that it had lots of hair.
Nothing was as scary as that thing standing there!
Then I said, "Catch me if you can!"
It was coming towards me,
so I ran.
I never came back after that monster attack,
and I still wonder about the thing in the dark.
