Monsters In My Bedroom:

by Scott Cole   Oct 10, 2016


There's monsters in my closet
And underneath my bed,
There's ghostly apparitions
That's looming inside my head.

My blankets are my savior
They serve as my landmark,
So creatures of the moonlight
Won't scare me in the dark.

There's faces in my window
And dim shadows on my wall,
There's noises in my bedroom
That cause my heart to stall.

There's panic between my ears
And fright within my bones,
These demons of the nighttime
Won't leave my nerves alone.

There's footsteps in the hallway
And thumps inside my chest,
There's nodding to my eyes
For my body needs some rest.

My mommy always told me
That monsters are not real,
My daddy always told me
That monsters are not ideal.

No monsters in my closet
Nor underneath my bed,
Those ghostly apparitions
But only exist inside my head.
