I awoke in dark

Unable to see

The darkness, it had swallowed me

My blackened sight, it seemed to pierce-

And then I herd it, something fierce

Fierce, and hungry, and sharp, and mean

And darkness made this fierce unseen

I stepped forward

One step, five step, ten-

Something brushed against me then

It made me jump, and scream, and cry

The unseen fierce had passed me by

Fierce circled me

How could I tell?

Along with Fierce came unseen smell

A smell of rot and crusted blood

I didn't move, knowing I should

Showing no fear

I stood my ground

And held my breath

Awaiting death

But death didn't come

Or so it would seem

My eyes opened instead

It was all just a dream
