Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Hounded
 

I heard a muffled footstep after dark,
A sound that chilled my senses to the bone.
Night blurred the inky outlines of this park --
Spun 'round. Why had I chose to walk alone

Into the dangers of a moonless night
Where strangers mayhap come to cause me harm?
I chewed my lip and, shivering with fright,
I changed my course – my heart beat with alarm

For still the footsteps seemed to draw quite near
And tread an icy pathway down my spine.
'I will not, WILL NOT give in to my fear'
I said, then turned to face these fears of mine.

My fear at once turned into laughter's gales.
“Come here” said I. Two dogs came wagging tails.
