Eerie silence filled the room
The floor was dingy and damp
Creepy darkness would soon loom
As I floundered in the swamp.

There appeared a face pale and white
I wanted to let out a shrill cry
I wanted to put up a hard bloody fight
But only a gasp escaped, hard I might try.

I woke up to irate rappings on the door,
It was 7 AM on a Monday morning
I had to return to mundane chore
As I heard my livid alarm ring!

There can be nothing graver and scarier than a Monday Morning!

Good one!

It's me that gets livid when the alarm goes off especially on Tuesdays for some odd reason. I don't like February either - to me it's like a whole month of Tuesdays!

Thank you!

Tess Kincaid said...

Ha! Why do alarm clocks always sound so angry?

Helena said...

It's good to know she still had the urge to fight, if not the strength!
