    The hands on the clock painfully inch closer
    The moon is arisen and full
    It’s pale light cover the frozen landscape
    Blackness fills the sky, empty of the stars warmth

    I hear every second tick away
    The shivers of the night
    The creak of old bones
    The howls of unspeakable nightmares

    The clock stops frightened to move
    It’s hands pointing in the air
    It is midnight on Friday the 13th
