Friday the 13th

In the dark deep of night 

Hear the growl feel the bite

Of the creatures i had locked away 

They were gone now they're back 

As they sense that I lack 

The conviction to keep them at bay 

Trouble is all i see 

Is a shadow or three

Dance around at the edge of my eye

Some are quick others slow 

Like they want me to know 

This is what you become when you die

Could it just be the date 

Freddie feeding me bait 

As he strives to get into my dreams 

As he slashes his way 

Through my night into day 

Whilst ignoring my terrified screams 

As the thirteenth now ends 

All my thoughts turn to friends 

Who were with me when this all went down 

I will pray they survived 

The night Krueger untied

Ran amok as he claimed back his crown

        Well thanks for reposting...

        There are so many layers in good horror fiction.

        You’ve motivated me to dabble...

        Might take a month... watch this space...
