We All Have At Least One

They are

Not monsters.

They don’t

Look like one.

 

They are

The shadows

That just

So happens

To follow

You around

When you

Were sure

You are saved

By the light

But then

They engulf you

Completely

After dark.

 

They are

The whispers

So faint

You could

Have sworn

It was not there

Until their words

Ring in your ears

 

But just like

The monsters

In those movies

Only you can see,

Hear,

And feel them.
