Spectres

They came to me.
The room was full of night.
They crowded around my bed
and gave me a fright.
Expressionless dressed in white.

One minute i was asleep.
The next minute they were there
standing next to my slippers
and robe on the chair.

Intruders in my room.
Came to me unbidden
gave me my tablets and
told me to swallow it down.
I pulled my blankets over my head
and waited for them to be gone.
