It is definitely a flatworm, like Marta said. But I don;t think it is Planaria.
It looks more like "Bipalium" to me. There are so many of these eerie little meek creatures around our place too, especially since it is the rainy season. Unlike Planaria, it is harmless and very slimy.

Is for sure a type of flat worm. I have to see if I can help more in the ID.
