In My Room (poem)

Updated on October 29, 2012

I feel its heartbeat there beyond the door

As here I lay imprisoned by my bed

With thoughts of fear now racing through my head

To shout he’s here the one you’re searching for

-

It’s then I hear the doorknob slowly turn

I cling to sheets for safety they provide

Another sleep a safer place to hide

A cloud of ifs my mind began to churn

-

Is that its footsteps now within my room

Or merely madness my mind has set free

Surprising how long time’s second can be

For coward who runs away from his doom

-

So thus I must face the cause of this strife

The last thing I saw was passing of…

      I just felt goosebumps on me at the end of the poem that wasn't there. Cleverly done!

      The inevitability of facing ones on last fears must be a trying circumstance. GBY. Interesting hub.

      I like the feel of this...it encourages one to use one's own mind.

      I have many a dream where I think someone or thing is in my bedroom. I then fight to stay awake terrified I will go back into the ghostly dream...then I get mad and say, "alright bring it on," and whatever is gone and I sleep soundly!

      Brilliant poem, and yes you can take it either way!
