POEM : MONSTERS

I HAVE SEEN MONSTERS WITH CLAWS THAT GOUGE
AND SHARP TEETH THAT BITE

AS A SMALL GIRL, A MONSTER WOULD DRAG ME FROM
MY BED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

THE TORTURE WOULD GO ON FOR HOURS. IN MY MIND.......
I WENT TO MY COMFORT ZONE. MY HAPPY PLACE,
USING SHEER WILL POWER.

NOW AS AN ADULT I ENCOUNTER NUMEROUS MONSTERS.
JUST AS I HAVE GROWN UP, THEY HAVE BECOME SLY IMPOSTERS.

WHY, I HAVE EVEN MET ONE WHO POSED AS MY LOVER AND FRIEND !
BUT, ALAS, THE MASK FELL OFF. HE WAS A TRUE MONSTER IN THE END !
