A Familiar Stranger


A familiar

silence in the room.

A familiar

chillness in the air.

I couldn’t hear anything


for the clock ticking.

My hands and feet

sweating cold.

A presence

of someone or something

I did feel,

in the darkest lonely

corner of my room.

All I could see

was two small marble spheres,


and as steady as a statue.

It’s fiery gaze pierced my every cell

and shattered my courageous spirit,

I was so proud of.

A familiar

silence in the room.

A familiar

chillness in the air.

A familiar

look and

a familiar


Unknown of its identity or its purpose,

I stared at it frozen to the core.

Despite having seen it many times,

it was still

a stranger.

A familiar

    Very well written. One thought kept coming back. Why are you so afraid of yourself?

    1. Varun says:

    Remind me of my nightmares while I’m awake. *shudders* With the smudges on the screen (or maybe it’s the image itself) I can almost make out a nose of a beastie , I’m betting it’s a trick of my easily manipulated eye

    1. Nox says:

      It’s the picture…. still creeping me out.

      1. Varun says:

        yeah, the picture is like that. There is a shade of nose and ears. I know it’s creepy but its somehow pulling.

          Creepy is good.

    So who was it? Killing Suspense

    1. Varun says:

      hehe.. i don’t know who it was. It’s a dark figure with beady eyes always staring from the darkness. Always creeping me out. 😓

      1. thinkinkadia says:

        Must be the neighbours cat! or, your mirror reflection! or Bhootnath!

      2. thinkinkadia says:

    May be it is trying to say something, Uchiha! Try to listen. A lovely and a unique read!

    1. Varun says:

      arigato senpai..
      but even i try to listen, it doesn’t say anything. It’s just a dark cold silent gaze. 😱😱😱

      1. yuhublogger says:

    Thought it must be about a cat you’re speaking of…But on second thoughts, are you, by any chance, referring to your paranormal experiences? Do you really see strange figures in dark rooms? Creepy stuff?
