There is no monsters

There is no monsters under your bed

an alternate identity

your worse enemy

The monsters are in your head

.

.

Unalluring in the darkness

Surprises you as she bares her teeth

Reminding of the what is repugnant deep beneath

This monster is heartless

.

.

The monster rearing itself on the inside

Breaths are short and shallow

Dry mouth, impossible to swallow

Under your attractive surface, she will hide

.

.

The monster is angry

Defiant, uncompromising in its reality

Quivering, sinking I have ceased to be

The monster is pointing at me

.

.

Raging against her

You deny her

You push her

You no longer believe in her

.

.

The monster grew on your fear

Return to me, my true essence

Bring softness to my presence

Recover my tender heart, so dear

.

.

Don’t hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love.

.
