Haunted House - Poem by Sara Sulja

Written for a Halloween poetry Contest, ended up with 3rd Place: D

I wave goodbye to safety and light
And say hello to danger and darkness
I’m on an adventure, I reassure myself
Breathing deeply to get rid of the terror
Moans, groans and screams reach my ears
I take my first baby step forward, afraid
A skeleton crumbles at my feet
A jump back determines my fate
I fall into emptiness
Eyes wide and no sound comes
I fall to a soft silk material
Landing beside the handsome dark
Fangs slightly come from the mouth
A creature of the dark
He stirs, I run.
Adrenaline runs through my bloodstream
I enter a graveyard
Trying to block out muffled screams,
Of people buried alive, their hands grasping freedom
I run around in circles
No sense of direction
A bony grip clutches my pale arm
I breathe in, turning slowly
Vacant eyes gape at me
Maggots and worms crawling
I scream and panic, twisting away.
Muffled evil laughter following me
I run endlessly. Lost.
In a haunted house,
I have determined my fate
