faceless moon

Stumbled down the stairs. Ran out in the woods. Tripped over a piece of wood. Curled up in a ball. Listened for their footsteps. They retreated. The steps disappeared. Slowly started breathing again. Slowly the heart stopped racing. Lay against the cold, wet surface of the woods. Looked up in the sky. Saw a faceless moon. bigger than all the stars. It stared back down into the woods. Closed the eyes. Could not see it no more. A sigh of relief. A piece of wood cracked. Footsteps coming back. black, exited, faces staring. Beating, screaming and dragging. One last look at the moon. Closing the eyes forever.
