Childhood · fantasy · Me

Never sleep again

Afraid of the dark

Monsters waiting in the black

What was under the bed?

Teeth awaiting to feed

Attacking my dad downstairs

Mind running wild

Off with their heads

They’re here

I’ll always remember that face

Haunting me

Red dots on bodies

Blood spewing from open mouths

Falling forever backwards

Calling out in that empty space

Wishing to never sleep again

Never sleep again

Never

Childhood · Me

How my bedroom was

How my bedroom was

My teddies stacked to the side

Watching over me with approving stares

As if knowing my next moves

My bed was a stage

For my adoring silent crowd

As I would jump to touch the sky

Springs squeaking ready for the next jump

Elation in my movements

Until

The unapproving voice echoed

Then

The thuds on the floor

Silence….

As I listened

Pure concentration

Hairs noisily erect on my neck

As still as a mouse

Awaiting to see my predator

Then

The stairs thumped

Scattering to my teddies

Hiding in their pile

Searching for safety

Two eyes peaking from a fluffy mountain

Holding my breath

Motionless

Until

The door flung open

Then

I went to my happy place
