Here i am….
Cowered in an unfamiliar house corner. Thunder rolls around me. Darkness sets before me. My breath panting with fear, quivering for shriveled silence.
I know their here…
It’s hard for me to move knowing what i know. Knowing that a nightmare has created an uncertain reality for my moment in this time.
The house echo’s with thunder that rolls like stalking footsteps. The lighting flashes silhouette furniture of not my own. My nocturnal vision has adjusted to it’s natural state. Vision is dampened yet somewhat clear and fear is lingering.
I hear no movement from the level I’m cornered to. I stand strong on two bare feet rushing my moment to the enclosed staircase to make an attempt to survive.
Noise rushes the house, lighting rattles with fury, i crouch on all fours half way up the stairs. Now gripping carpet with grainy felt.
I look up, there one peers down at me…
A man with no good intentions. In one single bound i leap away from the staircase, struggling for breath, for that emotions have it overwhelmed.
I run towards a big open living room that is encased with two single steps on the far side. I run towards them in an attempt to escape.
Lighting and thunder collide and two more men appear. I slip down to my bottom to prevent sudden fate but all it has landed me is three men with no faces. Drenched in the color black they have left me with no clear path to escape.
Man one has a braided rope clutched between both hands. Man two holds a knife with only silver shining from it’s blade. Man three is clinching his fists with the noise of black leather piercing the air…
They pounce…and where am i… I’m trapped!
Man one holding with all of his might the rope tightly around my neck, man three gripping my ankles leaving no room to force my body through. Then there’s man two straddling my waist pressing down on my body hard, with both hands held together above his head…
Here i am… terrified beyond belief… no place to go… no move to be made. I can feel the tears rolling down my cheeks, crying struggling noise being made.
I begin to gaze out the large windows that have been sprayed with the storms current rain. Eary blades of light dashing down with each bolt of fierce electricity, colliding with the beast of nature.
I close my eyes with fear swelling deep. Nothing but noise of a shattering thunderstorm and my silenced tongue.
In one last attempt of dreary light, i peak through to find my nightmare continued. Man two plunging down towards my chest, his silver blade!
I scream and sit up…still scared i look around the room and am relieved it was only a dream!
