The Heebie Jeebies

Whilst walking under a local subway I began to feel a little creeped out and imagined myself in the middle of a horror movie! This resulted in me penning the following lines and on sharing this on my Instagram account, one follower told me I should write a thriller. Who knows, maybe one day! If you would also like to follow my poetry on Instagram you can find me #coachingcreatively.

Subway Scene

The subway air was ghostly cold

It stank of faded fag

The spooky stories she’d been told

Unfolded like used bags

The corridor which once she saw

as part of her routine

Now seemed to have mean things in store

As she heard gurgling screams

Graffiti strikes like sharp-tooth spikes

Pulled grim and grisly faces

The light went out and she thought « Yikes

Of all the blasted places! »

Propelled by fear, she pinched one ear

And woke up from this dream

which was more real than it appeared

Long lived the subway scene

  1. Very vivid descriptions, gave me the heebie jeebies! Best stanza was this one: Graffiti strikes like sharp-tooth spikes / Pulled grim and grisly faces / The light went out and she thought « Yikes / Of all the blasted places! » 🙂
