The candles flicker as I sit
and listen to the wind scare
the bejesus out of me.
Out of nowhere, it comes,
and I think something
is out there.
I hear trees and bushes rustling;
I wait for a cat to wail but it never does.
It stops, and I figure I have to close
this screen door.
No fucking way it's staying open.
No fucking way...
When the screen slams shut, I hear
something else as I spin my head
and hear the loudest creak
in my life coming from
A chill sweeps by my face and I
can feel the candles taunting me.
I watch them until they melt.
