Creative Work of Mylapore Children


By Vidyuth Ashok

All alone
I see a dim spark
I hear weird sounds

I see a black creature
Big and bad
I jump and hop
It does the same

I run and rush
It does the same
I get scared
I squeeze through a gap

And it follows me in
I move my hand like I am blind
I search and search
And boom the lights come back

I see around the room
The creature is missing
I finally realize
That it was nothing…
But my shadow!
