Submitted by BUTTT BUTTT
it happened again.
i woke up, lying in bed facing the wall in the semi dark of my shitty inner city apartment. i can feel it staring at me.
its there. waiting for me to roll over and look it in the eyes.
its happened so many times ive lost count.
i cant. if i dont look, it wont grin that fucking grin.
that FUCKING grin.
i know its just a dream. it has to be. this sort of thing cant happen in real life. is this real life? how can i be sure? its happened so many times.
i can roll over...i can look.
its there. its right there. right where it always is. sitting cross legged on the floor, leaning forward. its twisted features just inches away. i cant blink. if i blink itll grin. if i try to roll over again, itll grin. if i do anyhting other than stare itll grin that fucking grin with a mouthful of teeth like broken razors and crooked needles.
its never done that before.
it laughs without even moving its face.
it sounds like a death rattle but infused with a sadistic malice that stings my ears. its in my head. its scraping its filth crusted claws along my necrotic psyche lancing the infections and drinking the spiritual pus. i understand now. it eats fear.
it stands up. its never done that before. its never moved. how can this thing be alive? is it alive?
this is just a dream. its dessicated lips curl back and back and back revealing a mouth more like a rotting wound than a smile. it lunges.
WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP!
i wake up.
my eyes shoot open. im lying in bed facing the wall. i can feel it staring at me.
