Ode To A Raven

There was a knock upon my door

it woke me from my sleep

I didn’t reach for a light

I couldn’t even breathe.

It shouldn’t have been

there

no one should be at my door

all I wanted to do was sleep

But there was a knock upon my door

” Is anyone there? “

a voice echoed  from the dark

” Answer me, are you there?”

And then it knocked again

louder then before

So I crept to my door and I pushed it open

” What do you want?” I demanded

as my door swung open wide

and a horrible white light burned into

my long shut sleeping eyes…

And a voice called from beyond the brightness:

What the hell is that? For God sake shut it, shut that coffin lid NOW!
