The Stairs

I am standing
here 
at the bottom
the way up is 
cramped
claustrophobic 
creaky

Caution, now

Murky yellowish 
glares of light
muddies 
the landing
stares horror
through me

Caution, now

Up there
in that room
omens glare
and 
I freeze
here 
at the bottom
I do not want to
walk up
I do not want to 
see 
what waits
up there

Caution, now
