How Far Will He Go

It’s a hot August- summer night-
I went to bed- like every other night.
I sleep backwards- so –
My head can be by the open window.
It’s really hot!
But a little breeze comes in-
Along- midnight.
After the days heat passes- to a –
Cooler- midnight.
Aim fast a sleep-
Now that it’s cooler- outside.
When suddenly- something wakes me-
A noise– from outside
I open my eyes-
My head right by the window.
I see him –
His face– pressed up- against the screen-
Outside– my window.
I freeze at the sight-
My body filled with fright-
He looks right at me-
Then falls back down to the ground-
Not making a sound.
I sit up fast-and look outside-
I see him running through my side yard.
He runs to the corner-
Then over my fence-
Across the street-Threw my neighbors back yard.
I wonder -how far- he’ll go-
This being- the second time.
I got a good look at him- this time.
He knows were I live-
He wants me to know-
He can get me at any time!
