For this week’s Writespiration, Sacha has given us ‘blackout’- to use as our prompt. I wasn’t sure which way to go with it, but this is what I ended up with!
As I sit there watching the big screen
All settled in for the night
Everything’s suddenly gone quiet
And someone has turned off the light.
The pitch black makes me feel nervous
I don’t like being here on my own
I can’t haven’t got any candles
And the where in the hell is my phone?
It feels like the set of a movie
Where the killer is hiding upstairs
Waiting until the right moment
To capture his prey, unawares
My heart is starting to race now
My throat is all parched and dry
I need to go to the toilet
And I’m just about ready to cry!
When, suddenly a massive explosion
Of light and sound dims my fears
I can relax and calm down now
As the opening credits appear.
