Don’t Look

You have noticed them at the corner of your eye, lurking in the dark minding their business. Don’t be fooled as they are very real. Probably even more so, you are no one to question their reality as you are the one who is irrelevant, a ripple in the river.

The sounds you hear, the unbelievable things you imagine are all real. You just don’t understand them hence your fear.

So hear my advice and don’t look when you hear a sound, a figure in the shadow, something behind you.

DON’T LOOK as they don’t like being seen. If you do they will let out a shriek so shrill that it will shadow all your cries for help.

You won’t die but you’ll wish you did. You’ll be banished from your reality. You’ll be woken up from the dream that you are living in.

You’ll watch everyone living their dreams and envy them for what could have been.

They’ll notice you but won’t see as they are blinded from the truth.

There will be some who will look, you’ll cry for help but you will turn them into something so sick that you will pity yourself.

Then you’ll realise what you have become. You will be them. So DON’T LOOK
