This story, started out very choppy at the start. Initially it had a comedy feel to it, and had a few medical terms thrown in here and there (just to put my schooling to use). A good friend set me straight and pointed out what parts worked and what didn't.
Initially I was going with another fairy tale horror, but this worked much better than the fairy tale horror (which I've set aside for now, must level up before I tackle it again).

Brother had a job working at the graveyard, quit after a week. He’d been having trouble keeping a job since, on account o’ him hearing voices and such. Doctor told him, It’s nothing: auditory hallucinations, your mind playing tricks. Here’s a prescription.
It’s only gotten worse. Brother tells me of shambling horrors, hungry shadows, and a crying child in my closet. I started sleeping with the lights on.
A few weeks later my brother was dead. Suicide. Our family distraught.
I’m seeing the doctor now.
I been hearing someone else crying in the closet.
Not a child.
Not a child.
