Writers Terror

A Poem by Ajenifuja Damilola


I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to concoct sweet stories of heroism and romance. This was taken from me. So now i'll write a story of horror and terror. You'll have to believe it becos all such stories are true. A story has its own truth,no matter how wretched. I am that sense of not being alone that u suddenly suffer.
Think hard.
I am very close. I could scratch ur eyes out. I could blind u. But if i did,u would be seeing me. You would see without seeing. And i would be ur most recurring image.
I am getting through to you. You hold this fone in ur hands and u dnt realize that by doing so u have licensed me to communicate with you. This abstract exist only in ur mind. Take ur eyes off it and it cease to be. Put off ur fone and its gone.
But off d phone and i'm still in ur mind,aren't i?
Yes. You see, you have summoned me forth from my abode. I exist becos u're thinking abt me...

A scary idea. The power of imagination and suggestion is very strong. To be honest your first bit about scratching eyes out didn't scare me but I think developing the idea of how the phone can take over is very frightening.
Well done,
