Haiku: Nothing Is Scarier

... ... ... ... ...
... ... ... ... ... ... ...
... ... ... ... ...!

Paranoia sets,
And the mere thought of danger
Paralyses you.

There's nothing to fear.
It's just a harmless nothing.
Except it isn't.

Is something out there?
Either there is or isn't...
It's worse than it seems.

Imagination
Is best at brewing terror.
There's nothing there... Right?

......................

............ don't look.

This trope is about
being scared by lack of event.
Watch out behind you.

It's coming for me.
I've been waiting in the dark...
Let me face it now.
—Danger

A chill snakes your spine
You look to behind, nervous
Your fate is now sealed

What's down at the end
Of this dark, scary hallway?
No, you can go first.
