86 Entries for “footsteps”

  1. A long time ago. In a run-down rooming house. Upstairs, where all the four children slept. Except that night, two of the older ones were gone, staying somewhere else. The mother was at work. The father was home. The baby was sound asleep in her crib. But the five, six or was it seven year old was awake. She never slept well; the TV downstairs in the living room was always on so loud, she couldn’t sleep. Sometimes she liked it though because it was kind of like she got to stay up late and she could watch tv without watching. Listen. That could put her to sleep sometimes. But this night, the TV suddenly stopped. It was quiet. She knew that he was the one who had turned it off; who else, no one else was home. And then she heard his footsteps. Slowly, because he was crippled in one leg. He couldn’t climb stairs like other people. As a matter of fact, he never came upstairs, it was too hard. But this time, he was coming. One step at a time. One. Then one. Then one. Why was he coming upstairs now? She put her hand on herself. He was coming up for this. For her. Yes. He had done that once before, she remembered. And every time he took another step, she screamed inside at what was coming.

  2. Creaking stairs. Click clacks of heels on tile floors. Sticky feet, sucking themselves into the ground. Wet footprints left behind on hot, dry concrete.

  3. The footsteps are hollow and empty and echo in the long barren corridor in the ancient hall. The feet patter and the sound fades into the night air.

  4. footsteps
    take me away,
    to a land of ecastacy,
    moons and planets,
    my eyes glow,
    i hear my own voice tickle my soul
    as it flows
    from the foot steps i take forward

    then im quick sanded
    by some unknown invisble bandit
    oh thats
    the thousands of negative thoughts attempting to attack me
    each foot step’s regimine
    communes with my all-mighty operational controller

    wherever i’m stuck,
    dreaming gazes me into the future
    the very glimpse,
    a tiny ant
    of hope
    brings about the feeling

  5. The word footsteps has many meanings. I have heard this from childhood. I think it’s more important to stand on your on foot than following other’s footsteps. It is good to be unique in your own way.

  8. Sitting here in this creepy house, I came to wonder why he would murder his family so cruelly. As I was sitting there, I started to hear a creak in the floor boards and footsteps gathering closer. I quickly turned around to see that nothing was there. I thought to myself, maybe this is just my imagination. It’s probably my mind being in a state of paranoia being in this house.

  9. Walking through the hallway was the man in dress shoes. His every step sounded off with a click and echoed throughout the empty hall.

  10. I hear footsteps coming up the hall. I know he’s home from a night of drinking. I pray that he just takes his shower and passes out on the couch without incident. I hope that he doesn’t see or find something that’ll make him mad. He’ll wake the whole house if he does. He’ll disturb the peace that I try to so hard to maintain.

  11. walking on the muddy trail ,my feet were soaked.

  12. Tap. Tap. Tap.
    I could hear the footsteps echoing down the corridor. I had to get out soon, I knew if they got any closer that would be the end of me. The end of everything.
    Tap. Tap. Tap.
    They were getting closer. I wiped my sweaty hands on my jeans so I could get a grip on the lock. I had to find a way out and then hide. I had to.
    Tap. Tap. Tap

  14. My footsteps are precious to be left on a heart that pours water over them. Instead I would rather walk on a path with muck all over. Life is short so I choose to be wise and keep my step with care every time. Too proud you think but I know how it feels when people act sick.

  22. Whenever I hear the word footsteps, I think about how I have played a role in someone’s life. Whether me being in their life and them being in mine has made a difference or not. When I think of footsteps, I think of a person walking on the beach and the marks which they leave behind. It is very important for us to be a part of one’s life. When we will their life with lots of love and care, they will feel loved.

  25. Footsteps on sand are washed by the waters, but few people’s footsteps in our hearts can never be erased, not even by tears. They are more like imprinted ones. That will never leave us. Few make us smile, some let us cry. But all are memories, sweet memories.

  27. imprinted in the sand
    under the weight of a person.
    a temporary trail,
    the manipulation of the earth
    how it molded
    to ones movement,
    leaving a lasting after thought.

  35. I’ve been avoiding my roommates for some time now. A week, to be precise, if precision were what I were after, or if to weren’t also true that I’ve been avoiding them since I met them. I like one a little better than the other one, but yet I find that even she and I have little in common when push comes to shove.

    Listen for my footsteps
    I won’t be on my tiptoes
    Keep your ears open for the echoes of my footsteps down those halls

  39. I took all wrong footsteps in my love life. I believe I’m not yet mature about it. But I am happy the way I am, the person I am with and the future I’m starting to picture in front of me. I learned how to make me happy, how to make him happy, and have fallen in love with someone I wouldn’t ever bet I would. And this feeling is awesome. Life is unpredictably beautiful.

  40. My heart beat so loudly, I could hardly hear my own footsteps against the wood. And how that wood creaked! It threatened again, and again to give away my position. The sun was setting, casting long ominous shadows down the hall, and my own shadow stretch in front of me, creeping along with me like my partner in this crime. The cimmerian hallway seemed alive with the darkness. My nightgown tickled my ankles and for a moment, I felt a presence behind me. I whirled around, but nothing, no one was there. My shadow on the ground copied my every move, and it almost made me laugh how scared I was. I proceeded further, the floor groaning and creaking under my weight. I opened a door but was disappointed to see that it was only the closet. I sighed and started to go back to my room. I was just imagining things–this was my first time at my grandmother’s large yet remote estate. But just as I was about to close the closet door, something shifted. It was if the shadows inside were gaining depth and I couldn’t look away. I was drawn to the darkness–a strange instinct tugging within me. Then something happened that to this day, I still can’t explain. The darkness turned, gaining shape and definition and red eyes were staring straight at me.
