Nightmare

A howl rings out
In the dead of the night
Straight out of nightmares 
It gives children a fright.
 

Paws pad closer 
Like leaves on the wind
Quieter than ghosts 
Quicker than sin.

 

Teeth are bared
White knives in the dark
Sharp as a razor
Fearsome as sharks. 

 

Saliva drips like poison 
Leaking from the jaws of death
Burning like lava
More with every breath. 

 

Eyes glow like embers
You couldn't run if you tried 
No one is safe 
For there is nowhere to hide.
