Snake posterIf you needed any proof that the indie horror scene is the future of the genre, you need not look any further than filmmaker Spencer Gray’s short film, SNAKE WITH A HUMAN TAIL.

When I’m afraid

When it’s late at night
And you lay sleeping
Down the hall the kids lay dreaming
And I’m awake struggling to breath
That’s when I’m afraid.


When I’m on my own
The house is too quiet
All I hear is the sound of my thoughts
And the sound of my heart in my ears
That’s when I’m afraid.


When I’m in the shower alone
The water nearly boiling
Washing my cares away
My hands come away covered in hair
That’s when I’m afraid.


When I’m so tired that I cry
Helpless and exhausted
Away from prying eyes, and harsh words
And I truly think of ending it all
That’s when I’m terrified.


When I see the world in a different light
So much love and too much hate
I wonder if we will ever learn
And whether it’s worth it to try
If we will never know more than that
That’s when I’m afraid.
