Closer and Closer

Every time I go to sleep, I wake up suddenly, and there it is.  Its standing in my room, so dark I can only really see an outline.  And when I see it, when I see it it takes one step closer, and then vanishes.

It's halfway across the room.  I've tried sleeping elsewhere.  It just appears that much distance from me.  And takes one step closer.

I don't know how to stop it.

I already told you my secret.

I already said it.

Why won't it just leave me alone?

I don't want to die like my brother.  Not when I've made a life for myself.  Not when I've got so much to look forward to.

I don't know what to do.

I can't lose all my friends.  I can't lose the only family I have.

Don't make me.  Please, please don't make me.
