Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
Since the narrator expected to find someone on the other side of the door, and instead found nothing, he’s starting to get really freaked out. The possibility of a supernatural presence begins to creep into his mind.
