You are sitting there right now, exactly as I was just two weeks ago.
You are reading through these articles, daring yourself to feel fear.
You are laughing at posts that seem fake to you, brushing off the slight tingle you feel racing down your spine.
You are looking around the room, searching but not seeing.
You are starting to feel that knot of fear in your stomach, you are wishing you hadn’t started reading this post.
You are feeling the sensation of warm breath on the back of your neck, you are feeling it and yet you won’t turn around.
You are telling yourself this post doesn’t scare you, you’ll keep reading to prove that to yourself.
You are starting to wonder why you’re getting so scared in the first place, none of this is real…is it?
If you pay attention, listen really well, you might even be able to hear my eyes blink. Just once.
Don’t turn around.
If you close your eyes, see with your mind, you might even be able to see me move to stand in front of you.
Don’t be alarmed, I don’t want much from you. I’ll only take what I need because I know you want to give it to me.
You are wondering what I want from you. You’ll know soon enough…
Don’t be afraid, it won’t hurt very much,
Don’t be afraid, you won’t even feel my touch.
You must not scream, I feed on your silence,
You must not scream, I don’t want to resort to violence.
I just want your eyes, do you really need to see?
I just want your eyes, I need the darkness to leave me.
By now you know, this darkness consumes,
By now you know, in blindness it looms.
I am, death,
I am, Eldreth.

    It started descending into blandness, especially if the reader didn’t even have space behind to turn around.

    I hate when pastas tell me I’m scared, when literally nothing has happened. If I’m not already scared you can’t change that by saying I am.

    Very sub-par. Don’t see why it deserved to be put on Creepypasta. Its not creepy, Its not original, and its not well written.

      I can agree with not creepy and not original but I wouldn’t go as far as to say it’s badly written. It’s actually quite well-written by comparison to quite a number of pieces I’ve seen, it’s the execution of it that was the problem, for me anyway.

    Didn’t even know it was a poem. You go from unrhymed to rhymed style…and cheesy rhymes at that. It was not creepy. The poetry was mediocre. It tried too hard. Sorry. I still can’t figure out how to rate with zero stars.

    I would wonder why anyone would be breathing down my neck right now, considering I’m on the can.

    “you might even be able to hear my eyes blink”

    This right here, is where I gave up. I didn’t stop reading, I just stopped giving a crap.

    What are you made of that I could hear you blink, metal? Wood? Cheesy sound effects? Ugh.

    Doesn’t turn around, remembers that I am sitting on a SOFA against a wall.

    This WASN’T very creepy but WAS written quite well, so I’m not sure if this should be badly received on Creepypasta or well received on Crappypasta.

    Needs more sauce.

    Like Spagghetti Bolognese!
