Something's Creeping...

Something comes creeping

Through the dark night

I look from my window

But it's just out of sight!


Something comes knocking

Knocking at my door

I slowly turn the handle

But, it's there no more!


Something comes crawling

Crawling so slow

Shall I turn to look?

I no longer know!


Something is breathing

Under my bed!

I dare not look

'case it looks dead!


Something is touching

Touching my hair!

I'm turning to look

'cos I know it's not ther...👹

Yes, Stephen A, flesh is unfortunately very versatile!

Thanks Stephen G!
'What else does flesh do?' well mine tends to wobble quite a bit at the moment ☺️

Something wobbles
Wobbles the flesh
Food is its king
Whether rotten, or fresh!

Fine,effective poem. Makes the flesh creep (p.s. what else does flesh do?).

Decidedly spooky! Very cleverly writtten in simple language with 'creeping, crawling, breathing, touching' used very effectively. (Between you and me, perhaps the stuff you're being sold isn't best Afghan?)
