The time I forgot to close the closet
door after I grabbed a towel and it
haunted me the rest of the weekend
while I waited for someone to come home
and close it for me because I'm a wimp.


Something hides past the open hallway door.
Twisting air. A live shadow, bloodshot eyes,
sharp fingernails curled behind wallpaper.
Green stench; plaque below gums, too many teeth
that click. A white face, dark gaping holes where
fear sits in the curve of eye sockets. Mist,
aura, presence, space, a rotting eyeball
hanging by the nerve caught in a hinge. It
could be anything, it could be real. Man
in a mask, guts on his shirt, meal in hand.
attempt at an nontraditional sonnet for class. couldn't make it long enough, so i made a long and lame title to replace the lines i was missing. hopefully my prof will find me as hilarious as i do

I WAS SO SCARED THE ENTIRE TIME. AND THEN I CAME UPSTAIRS ONE MORNING AND THE DOOR WAS CLOSED AND I WAS CONVINCED THERE WAS SOMETHING IN THE HOUSE

I asked my sisters when they came home if they had come over early that one morning for something and closed the door, but both of them said they hadn't and THAT MADE IT WORSE.

lmfao anyway, thank youu ♥
