There was something dark,

Something dreadful,

Lurking through the halls.

- a spirit!-

Malicious with disturbing desires,

Like a shadow, it followed

From room to room.

Such a monstrous  creature

Horrifyingly rank.

- a demon!-

I saw it!

Now it's far too late,

Jaws unhinged to show terrifying

Rows of razor like teeth.

A moment muttering,

A whispered prayer,

Followed by the nothingness of despair.
