I heard something traveling through the ductwork tonight
This woke me from my sleep and gave me great fright
I was awaken by a noise from the basement below…
A raccoon? a squirrel? a chipmunk? a sparrow?
There is no door to that level…so what is it?
I don’t know as I sit here and fidget!
I am terrified…terrified of the night and the unknown
Who do I call, who will answer the phone?
Now I sit here at the kitchen table, my heart pumping and my fingers typing
And I just heard another stumble and fall, vibrating through the piping
How one’s imagination runs with the fear…it probably is nothing at all…
I heard it the night before last, as well, a duct work running call
What do I do? It is after one in the early morning, and almost two
But now…three times I heard a sound…three times a sound, a few
Alas, my eyelids are heavy and falling to the ground
No more I hear, all is quiet, without any sound
bumps in the night – always eerie – nicely done
LOL…a bit silly…but it relieved my fears to write…took my mind off the fright! LOL
you need a fearless roommate !!!!
I need an empty basement! LOL
You weren’t kidding when you told me the other day you made a lousy follower. You have missed my last two post:)
I am going there right now! LOL
Jane … Your scary night reminded me of the time I woke up and heard someone typing on my typewriter in the next room. By the time, I sat up and was about to check on the noise … it stopped. I put my “noises” down to the stress I was feeling about the demands of a new job. Hope your “noises” are nothing more than your dreams playing out the events of the day as you try to sleep.
I haven’t heard anything since! It could have been simply a mouse that entered the duct system, as I live in the countryside, in a quiet subdivision…too quiet for me! Change is on the horizon—I am hoping!
