Here we are once more

hiding under the bed

and on the floor.

Shivering in fear

with tears in our eyes,

no noise, just silent cries.


You enter and walk near the bed

and in the pit of our stomachs

lies nothing but dread.

We cover our mouths

to mask our terror and

to shield any sounds.

But we failed at that

and now we all enter

into the final act.
