The Kernel





The Creatures from the Inter-Dimension

Hidden between what we know of time and space,

Live glowing blobs of energy without a discernible face

No one knows their motives, or the source of their power

But they seem to enjoy finding new children to devour.

The boy peeks through his fingers, and is blinded by their light

Perhaps if he hadn’t opened his eyes, he’d’ve survived the night

For if you ever gaze at these creatures, your time is up

And they slurp up your soul like sipping juice from a cup.

So be sure to stay under the blankie, your eyelids tightly closed

When the Creatures come to absorb you, you must stay composed.

Never look at them directly, and they’ll eventually go away

And you’ll get to survive… for at least one more day.
