I remember waking one night when I was younger,
laying in the darkness of my room,
my room was like a shoe box
not big in any sense at all
but this house was all my parents could afford.
As I lay there in the comfort of my bed,
I heard the door creak and sensed it opened,
I was laying on my side and facing the wall,
it’s a memory I find easy to recall.
Now as I heard the door shut I closed my eyes,
expecting it to be my girlfriend offering me a surprise
and I heard the breath and felt it on the back of my neck,
I turned to see the twinkle in her eye
but to my surprise, there was no one there,
just an array of little lights dancing before my eyes
and as I struggled to focus I could not shake how strange,
this experience was within my room.
I felt a prickle on the back of my neck as the hairs stood on end,
as I searched the gloom for something,
a little more solid,
so I could come up with a reason for it
but to this day it’s still a mystery,
who exactly was in that room with me
was it a spirit or some other entity,
I clearly had no intentions to hurt me,
or was there some other reason that could explain it,
it all just seems so strange to me
and has stayed within my memory
and one day maybe I will find out the answer
about all those little lights that were dancing
right there in front of me.
