In Her Head

 

Every night she would look for the monsters under her bed, giving them goodnights for the hope that they wouldn’t invade her mind at night. She treated them with kind hesitance, never judging, never scared. The monsters were her friends, in a sense. Her monsters never horrified her because she knew worse things than their faces. She’s seen more than then they could ever hope for and has felt worse things than they could ever inflict. Then, one night, she went to say goodnight; her monsters were nowhere to be seen. Not a trace of them was left behind, this worried her beyond belief but still she went to bed. When she woke up she felt heavy, weighed down by something she couldn’t see, but could feel. A darkness clouded her mind, making her think things she has never thought of; hatred, anger, pain, things a little girl should never feel. Her eyes, not as bright as they were yesterday, coated in a haze of darkness. Her mind couldn’t and wouldn’t focus. She couldn’t think of anything sunny or bright, only thoughts of actions she didn’t want to do. She goes and crawls under her bed curling up in a ball and tears running down her cheeks. “monsters where did you go?” she cries out. Once she said their names a calmness covered her, the feelings seeming to drift into numbness. Then she knew, the monsters were no longer under her bed, but in her head. She’ll live her life now with the thoughts of creatures that knew nothing of goodness and love. She was one of them now. Laying under her bed she realized that now she was the monster. And she smiled.
