Lurking in the Shadows

December Prompt: Apparition

Infrared settled upon every surface

A haze, a film, an opacity

Elecrto-vibrations lit every hair afire

Buzz tingling and a cold shiver

Feet lead heavy toes scraping the floor

While yearning a path to the door

Lips released a silent whimper

Conceptualizing situations so dire

It’s very presence an audacity

Springing from an apparitional abyss
