Monsters

Monsters

A Poem by Steve Kittell

My world is quite small as you can see,

holds fewer monsters that’ll scare me.

Though they’re there, under bed too,

in the mirror they see you!

 

Outside, you know, they’re everywhere.

They happily haunt without a care.

With unwanted visits, I’m never alone.

These monster’s I fear are all my own.

 

Lurking weighty on shadowy shelves,

they’re all the weaknesses of ourselves.

All reminders of what we’re not.

That’s why monsters scare us a lot.

The End

This is a finely written poem by an experienced hand. (Even if it took a really long break). We do have a tendency to scare ourselves with dark thoughts. They ravage the mind at times.
