Secrets Under The Bed

Updated on July 21, 2015

I woke up to a shuffling noise tonight

It came from under the bed

Where I had swept away so many secrets before

But they are still breathing

They call out to me in a cold hollow whisper

They know me by name

And often times I can feel them bump against the box spring

Tonight when I looked over I saw one

It had slipped from under the bed

And was trying to crawl under my blanket

And grab ahold of my sanity

They scream at me with high pitched squeals

They know me better than I know myself

They seem friendly

Tonight I am sleeping under my bed

I am in a deadly darkness

I slowly whisper out my name

I am still breathing
