Asleep

Last night, I fell
Asleep
And when I woke up
I was in darkness
And it was cold
I looked around
And saw nothing
I looked again
And saw two eyes
I stared at them
And they stared at me
My heart jumped
Inside my chest
And I breathed
Heavy breaths
And then I saw
A set of teeth
They were sharp
And they grinned
Starving for me
I turned around
And started running
And heard footsteps
That weren’t mine
Whatever it was
It was following
I kept running
And running
And ran some more
It kept running
And following
The eyes got bigger
And bigger
The grin got wider
And wider
I kept running
And running
Till I ran no more
I felt a hand
Reach from the ground
And grab my feet
And then I fell
Asleep
And when I woke up
I was in darkness
