Little Monster

They come at night.
She won’t sleep.
Her little thoughts run far too deep.

She can’t explain.
She’ll never tell.
What haunts her haunted them as well.

They come at night.
They come in dreams.
Reminding her of what she’s seen.

Tho’ then’s not now,
and now’s not then.
She never wants to sleep again.
