It's In My House

May 8, 2020

PROMPT: Open Prompt

12
It's nighttime and the stars are covered by clouds.
The moon is yellow and dull.
It's been five hours since I laid down;
Three days since I've slept.
There's something that runs past my door at night,
Flinging itself down the stairs and bolting back up.
It's too loud to be my cats.
It's to hurried and clumsy. 
I can hear doors opening and closing.
No one admits to being outside my door in the middle of the night.
What is it?
When we talked about putting cameras in the hallway,
The noises stopped for a couple nights,
But when my family said I was sleep deprived, 
They came back.
Sometimes, they stop outside my door and wait,
Their breathing heard from the other side.
Often it sounds like the TV is on, 
But that's not right.
Because my parents went to sleep hours ago. 
Footsteps in the attic, running above my bedroom and stopping by the attic access. 
In my bathroom.
Am I finally losing it?
Or is there something there?
Running in the halls,
Stopping right by my door,
Walking above where I sleep,
And waiting to appear from the attic door?
I swear it hears me when I type.
It draws closer when I make a sound.
I'm terrified to step outside until there's light once more.
But the medication for the pain is downstairs.
Down the hall,
And past the closing doors.
What am I to do?
Word Count: 241
I normally write in my room when I can't sleep, and quite honestly, it does sound like someone is running around my house. It freaks me out, and it's been a while since I was well rested. Could it all be in my head? Am I hearing things?

    I've had this feeling a few times before (perhaps not to the extent you describe though). Love the descriptions you use, eerie and creepy and I totally feel it!
    Replying: Thank you for the kind comment on my poem! I'm a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints too ;)

    This is unlikely, but you could always research narcolepsy to see if that's a possible cause (I'm only mildly informed about it, but I know someone with it)

    Amazing!
    Also when I'm alone I do think the same way. Maybe it's just in our subconscious?
