Monster in the Closet.

 

Where are you Death?

 

Others turn away and choose blindness

while you slither on your stomach.



 

Look at me.

 

I am not afraid.

I have returned from the valley of sorrow.

I have seen it bring tears to a mother’s eyes.



 

I know your tricks.

 

Your insidious little hisses are only breaths.

You think you can hide in the dark

when others close their eyes.

But, when I look at you,

I see you’re only another part of life.



 

A fraud.

 

Your visage does not frighten me

on this side of the ground or the other.
