The Revenant Awakens

Thought
safe you were
even 
with dreaded fear
hear
wolves howling
baying 
broken moon
mist 
floating low
eyes
feral glow
staring
shivering 
weep
tears of urine
down your leg
stands before you
her eyes
dead
her hands
hooked
her neck
broken
grinning
deranged
haunting your dreams.
Waken
shivering 
listen to creaking door
ice cold
wind sweeps
through window 
just closed.
Peek 
tented blanket
seeking protection
see not the haunt 
stood above you
feel only
slimed finger
down nape of neck
fetid breath…..
caress alcohol veined cheek
clackety clack
skeletal fingers
grip
breath caught…..
giggles of a little girl
whispers.
