When it Draws Near

When it Draws Near

written by: Hannah Scott


Heartbeat drums louder,
footsteps draw closer,
hands are shaking,
eyesight is fading.
Panic is drawer nearer.

Hiding in the closet,
blackness overbearing.
Thuds of the door

Tears overflowing

Steps receding,
soft falls

Calm thoughts,
hand steady.
Dried tears and
focused eyes.

Door opens.
