My monsters for DVerse

Just came back from a week without coverage. Brian at dVerse suggest poetry about monsters. What better way to start. Now without my monsters I expect them back.

My monsters come to me at night
repeating what I’ve said and done.
They look like friends but leer and sing
offensive things. Breaking down
security, the walls I’ve built.

Entangled in my bed sheets
I twist and turn, with pounding heart.
Insomnia is company.
Alone with monsters that I hide inside.

My monsters come to me at night
repeating what I’ve said and done.

  1. I used to experience this after intense and/or long interactions. I’d wake with anxiety over what I’d said and how it might have been taken. It rarely happens now – I just trust my heart to be full of good intentions, regardless of how people may interpret me.

  2. Oh, sometimes this monster enters into my soul too–and I can feel it gestating inside me. And then..
    “Insomnia is company.
    Alone with monsters that I hide inside.” 😀
    Very well penned! Loved this!

  3. when we are at rest, they come…sound like guilt as well twisting what we say and do and using it to hurt us….having that element of truth makes them all the more real eh?

  4. Everyone has these monsters at one time or another, Bjorn. I hope they didn’t follow you on vacation. I’m sure you had fun but nice to have you back. BTW, “and” in the second line. 🙂

  5. Insomnia – that voice inside is terrifying indeed ~ Good work, specially on the weaving of the first and last verses ~
