void of course

the earth will swing us, as she goes

no more zombie movies before bed.

…you are absolutely certain you’re awake & if you look towards the doorway of your bedroom, in the dim light there will be a small girl standing there, waiting to look you in the eye, to leap. you know now, what horror stories mean by the terror in the air being palpable. you can practically reach out & touch your own fear, hovering around in a buzzing cloud. your chest hurts from your heart thudding & at the very moment you’re sure you can’t gasp any more shallowly, that your head is getting lighter all the time from the lack of oxygen, from the waiting, she leaps & oh-my-god,

you wake.
