  Dark Trick  

Home is within darkness
Electricity has went AWOL

Whisper of a cursed word
Escapes from your lips

Cautious awkward movements
Around your familiar home

Knocking into known objects
Have you limping in a mood

Sudden eruption of unusual sound
Halts your journey to the problem

The dark has you hearing things
Reassured stubborn steps begin

You reach the source of electric
No problems that you can see

Loud sounds reach your position
There something in your home

Neighbours cat is a presumption
Slight fear creeps across your skin

Shaky shout of a warning
Gives you a little confidence

Sight of a lurking shadow
Exemplified scream of fear

Dark trick of the eye
Breathe a sigh of relief

Standing still on one spot
Listen to the darkness

Convinced you are alone
Move on with your task

Turn around in a hurry
Meeting of a stranger

Sound of a gun goes off
You may be dead now
