“But I don’t want to go to bed, the man with no eyes is waiting for me in the closet!”
Write a horror or thriller story that contains this piece of speech. Is this a literal fear, or is this some kind of illusion?
The Man With No Eyes
I told her. I told her but she didn’t listen. “But I don’t want to go to bed, the man with no eyes is waiting for me in the closet!” Was I not clear enough? I thought I was being pretty clear. Maybe she forgot about the dreams. I told her about them, but maybe she forgot. Or maybe she didn’t take them seriously. I’ve heard adults don’t tend to put much stock in things like that. But I know that it...
Behind My Cardigan
"Go back to sleep, honey. It's just a dream."
Lee did not respond, he only stood distantly in the dark bedroom. My head thumped from my recent lack of sleep; my vision seemingly blurry in the dark. He had an angelic glow to him from the living room lamp behind him, so I could only make out his plump little outline. I scratched my head in confusion.
"Pray to God, he will help you fall asleep. And...
“But I don’t want to go to bed, the man with no eyes is waiting for me in the closet!” The little boy wails in his Spiderman sheets, thrashing about wildly.
“Honey,” his mother says, rubbing her tired eyes, “nothing is in the closet. I’ve checked billions of times.”
“You stay! You will see him too!”
“Come here,” his mother pulls him into a hug, wrapping her arms around the tiny boy. “I’ve given ...
It was Halloween again, my least favourite time of year. It brought back too many childhood memories. I closed my curtains catching a glimpse of the sea of costumed children walking past in the yellow pools of the street lights.
I climbed back onto the sofa and cuddled deeper into my blanket eating some popcorn and watching a comedy show, I could not abide horror. The TV flickered drawing me out...
The Man with No Eyes
"Thank you for coming over on such short notice Jessica. I didn't expect to be called into work tonight.", I say apologetically. Jessica is our babysitter. She's the best in the neighborhood, my son adores her. She is 18 years old, and about to graduate high school. With her light brown hair and dark brown eyes, she says with a smile, "Oh, Mrs. Sheffield, no worries. I am always up to look aft...
The Man With No Eyes And Many Teeth
“But I don’t want to go to bed,
The man with no eyes is waiting for me in the closet!
He crawls out at night, and sleeps by my bed
He inches closer ever night, smelling rotten almost dead
Mommy listen to my cries
He is coming back tonight
During the day he’s in disguise
But when you leave he will arise
He wears a suit that’s filthy brown
And has teeth as sharp as knives
He has no eyes, bu...
“But I don’t want to go to bed, the man with no eyes is waiting for me in the closet!” I kick back my blankets, shouting at my mother. She can’t send me to bed. Not while he’s there. “There’s nothing in your closet.” My mother says with a sugar sweet voice, hands pulling the covers up to my chin. She doesn’t know though. She hasn’t seen it. “I’ll even show you!” She says. She pulls open my closet ...
“I don’t want to go to bed, the person with no eyes is waiting for me in the closet!” Tony cried.
“For the last time Tony there is no one in your closet!” I screamed.
Our mom would be home any minute and my three year old brothers bedtime was an hour ago.
“Just to make you happy I will look in the closet ok?”
Tony nodded his lip quivering. I rolled my eyes and carried my exhausted brother up the...
the monster in the walls
i noticed you when i was six
you’re long fingers loved to scratch against the walls
at first i was scared
i would hide under the covers, praying that you would go away
you would whisper silently
i believed then that you where a liar
with you’re tail that seemingly burned with fire
you chilled in my walls while i was asleep
not even daring to take a peek
i didn’t know then
