Monster In The Mirror

bytheoncomingstorm©

There are monsters everywhere
But they aren't under my bed
They aren't lurking in the shadows
They are in my head

I'm not afraid to be alone in the dark
They are not there
They aren't hiding in my closet
Trust me though, they're everywhere

The monster I fear hides
It's concealed in the mirror
When I look closely
It comes nearer

It gazes into my eyes
It senses my fears
In menacing tones it whispers
"You're the only one who knows I'm here"

There are monsters everywhere
Just look and see
But there is only one that I fear
That monster is me

I like this one, really connects to that piece in me that fears the worst of myself.

you are

writing a lot of amazing work, glad you have graced us with your work :-)

I think this line

"You're the only one who knows I'm here"

might read better as

"You alone know I'm here"

as it is a closermore...
