Blank Stares

Updated: Mar 11, 2023

Chaos ensues in the lobby

Familiar faces surround me

They seem lost, brainwashed

like looking in the eyes of a zombie


Conversation distorted

They couldn’t understand

Giving only a hollow glance

Blinded by the cookies at hand


Yet they were starving

Their conscience unwelll

Then someone approached me

With a message to tell


A code of some sort

Written on a page

Letters I’ve seen before,

but much more strange


Like an informant

I move quietly through

Mysteriously knowing where I’m going to


A pit in my stomach

A crawl up my back

The tension pulls behind me

I was under attack


Faster and faster

I run in a fright

The youngest of them

Closest in sight


A rope with two swords

I was about to get hit

She threw it at my neck

And both sides split


Waking up in a panic

I open my eyes

Was that a dream I just had,

Or my reality in disguise?
