there is a monster under her bed~by Amber Folkner


 

 

there is a monster under her bed

not all monsters are imaginary
some take form in those we trust
she was robbed,
robbed of her soul
nightmares replay in her mind every time her eyes close
the face of him showing up everywhere she turns
there is no safe zone
there is no escaping him
the images are real
even when she is alone
wounds are wounds
hers run deep
they may not show through to the public eye
she hides them well
will they ever disappear?
only time will tell
there is a monster under her bed
she is constantly reminded of her pain
who is really to blame?
her fear keeps him fed
he mocks her tears
he haunts her dreams
monsters never sleep
