In the flame of the last candle
Floats an air I can't explain,
A dark mood I cannot handle
In the house of miss Lorraine.
In this room with shady lighting,
I look rigidly around,
Hoping nothing uninviting
Would approach without a sound.
Maddened by this constant dread,
That has crept into my soul,
I have not escaped, instead
I have lost all self control.
I cringe as the wait grows longer
For I start feeling a stare
That, in time, was getting stronger
With the smell of this thick air.
But the waiting was in vain
For I knew that it was hiding
And I tried remaining sane
As my nerve started subsiding.
Soon, the candle lost it's vigor
And the flame was barely burning
But I felt her eyes get bigger
As she gave into the yearning.
.
.
.
.
I don't wish to say goodbye
And accept such a demise
But no matter how I try
I cannot escape her eyes.
Finally! something new after a month and a half.

This is supposed to be psychological horror because, in the end, nothing is really happening. The only present terror is the one felt by the narrator.

Makes me think of a Jane Austin situation (mom's a fan, I haven't finished a book because of how round 'about the situations are) with how he panics and how it ends with a small hint of something but at he same time perhaps nothing at all.

Wow! Beautiful! While reading this I got an 'Edgar Allan Poe' feel from it! Great job :)

This has a very Victorian horror feel to it. Nice work
