In the Dark

I see creatures in the dark

Are they monsters?

They whisper


I whisper lie

And they whisper truth

I open my eyes

When did the tears come?

I lay awake, dreaming of light

All I see are shadows

The creatures wait


I hear screaming in the dark

Is it me?

I want to say monster

But instead I close my mouth

Can anyone hear?

My sound is trapped

Behind a close-lipped smile

I lay awake and listen for the morning birds

The clock winks two in the morning

The creatures wait


I want to fly away from this place

And live in the brightly lit stars

And lay in the grass and bleed

My stress to the Earth

These monsters

That I call my mind

Make me want to hide

Where they can’t find me
