The Monsters Under My Bed

The Monsters Under My Bed

Monsters Under My Bed

As I lay down they’re under my bed.
Or am I wrong are they in the wardrobe instead.

They can be in both places, in groups they all come.
In the middle of the night just to rattle my drum.

I close my eyes tight and think of nice things.
I think of Christmas and Santa Clause…the presents he brings.

This does not help, the silence is deafening.
The silence and darkness then become threatening.

I open my eyes and look round about.
I hear someone scream and let out a shout.

I look round my room.
Who can that be?
I seen no-one else.
Then I realise it’s me.

My mum she enters and puts my light on.
She checks under my bed……the monsters have gone.

She leaves my light on for the rest of the night.
So they do not come back and give me a fright.

Are the monsters real or just in my head.
As they only scare me when I lay in my bed.

        Your welcome your poetry is really good. I have a lot of poems on mental health, depression, bullying etc, so you might find some you like. The Familiar Stranger was about depression although i know a lot of my readers interpreted it different
