Short Scary Story – a reverse poem.

It’s time for me to go to sleep

My lungs relaxing my breathing, slowly

Need to fight the stifling feeling

Need to accept my nightly fate

Surrendering to the force – my only escape

Counting down, my body refusing to give in

My lungs in speedy harmony with the wallclocks’ ticking

As I lie on the bed

I stare straight at the ceiling

Singing ‘hasta la vista’

My nightly dreams –

Coming closer, and closer

I can hear footsteps

Thudding up the stairs


Now read from the bottom to the top.
