“Monsters in My Mind”

In the dark something’s lurking

Around the room my eyes are jerking

The closet is where my eyes chose to stay


From my closet comes the smell

Of moldy food and slug like gel

That runs across the floor in bright blue stripes


A creature with glowing eyes

Stares at me with my demise

Clearly written on its gruesome face


I’m alone in this dark room

With no help here comes my doom

A waiting me I just can’t seem to think


The one way out is through my door

But fear awaits me on the floor

Because of the beast under my bed


Now I know I’m not alone

There are 3 more beasts; I hear them grown

There is nowhere to go that’s safe
