she woke up crying
breathing fast
heart racing
little voice gasps
mama mama
the monsters are here
in my room
please stay near

shh, baby don’t cry
it was just a bad dream
no monsters can hurt you
when you are asleep

the monsters come
when you’re awake
beasts without a heart
and a human face

the real monsters

are out there
roaming free
in broad daylight
for all to see
