flashes

flashes of light, blinding, disconcerting

they run in the shadows

the tapping of claws across the floor

don’t be scared

shh

your panic draws them

the scent of fear in the air an intoxicating musk

what was that

probably nothing

the lights messing with your pupils

making it hard to focus

it sounds closer

closer

closer

by the time you know

it’s too late
