    I wake up in the still of night,
    to see not one, but two hellish eyes
    staring at me from the foot of my bed.

    I sit frozen in terror, as they move closer to me
    I cry out - "Please God no!"
    But how can this be?

    I scream and jump up out of my sleep
    "'Tis only a nightmare dear" -
    says a voice from the foot of my bed;
    From not one, but two hellish eyes.

    Hey LW - This poem is quite eerie - Has a Stephen King feel to it... I'd love to know your inspiration/motivation from whence came these words!

    Very interesting piece - Thanx for sharing it!

    Jacquii.

    Hi there

    From whence came these words? Well they are the result of a nightmare I had after which they were written :) Stephen King is one of my favorite writers so I am well pleased by your comparison. Thank you.

    Great poem. I enjoyed it a lot too. It's a strange scenario, but you lace with such subtle humor that I found myself grinning like a jackass at the end.
