The surroundings of his mates new flat
were certainly unfamiliar
how they got back was a real mystery
waking up on the lumpy couch
needing to find a toilet for an urgent pee
but it was difficult to see!
No idea where the bathroom was situated
hitting furniture with bare feet
unable to detect the light switches as well
eventually blundering there
relieved stared at a mirror above the sink
saw his mate in a blink!
Spinning around nobody was in there with him
he ran out the taps turned on
hitting every surface saw his mate sprawled
half on and off the king size bed
a naked girl laid there by his side both asleep
head filled noise of a mournful weep!
This shocked him into waking up hang over gone
alone in the lounge no girl for this guy
never lucky with females just got far too drunk
clothes scattered sat in underpants
on the settee a seat cushion suddenly depressed
heart missed a beat in chest!
Could not see anybody yet an impression visible
shivering it was though no longer alone
quickly jumped up as arm was gripped so tightly
had never been here ever before
knew at that crucial moment his life was at risk
an exit needed to be brisk!
Without any care though nearly nude ran
to the door hoping it would open
a distortion within the dim light faced him
with a tug of war with the handle
it suddenly sprung open was hurled back
hitting the wall with a whack!
Seconds later a force threw his body outside
bruised stood looking at the entrance
there was a blackness so dense had to recoil
then the door slammed with a bang
never moved so fast in his life into the night
with sickening and fearful flight!
On the news a days later heard two discovered
both found dead in a bachelor pad
too afraid to come forward lived with unease
often wondered why his life spared
what malevolent entity had been in that dwelling
innocent life for some reason quelling!
Now each day was a challenge would it come for him?
Regretting ever going to his mates flat?
