The Shadow - Poem by Rose Rosado

It's time to run.

Find a place to hide.

But nowhere to go.

Shh, it's getting closer...

Hiding under your sheets.

Staying still and slowly breathing,

You should have run! You should have run!

It's too late now.

Your destiny awaits behind that door.

*knock, knock* the young boy hesitates.

*knock, knock* a tear dropp falls down his cheeks.

*knock, knock* 'Go away! Just leave me alone! '

*knock, knock* the door cracks open.

Nothing but a shadow walks in.

The boy was too scared to even take a peek.

The dark room surrounded the poor boy.

The boy was gasping for air.

The shadow breathed heavily near him.

What could happen next?
