Step back!

I shout. My voice is a whip.

Teeth shattering teeth before me.

Do you recall the tension? It whispers.

Do you remember the hiss? It seeths.

I try to leave but the door steps backward.

I try to scream but the sound attacks me. Piercing.

There’s nothing to fear, it presses closer.

What is fear anyway?

It doesn’t stop. It won’t stop. Why won’t it stop?!!

JUST STOP
