This is my version of "Monsters" Hope you enjoy both mine and the original post from Sue:


  Monsters are real to an extent, it seems, But they mainly stick to really bad dreams. At times, however, a feeling I get That one may be lurking in the shadows yet. On a foggy night that fills me with dread, I think I feel persons long since dead. They creep through the night and whisper to me; They tap on my shoulder and laugh with glee. I feel the icy cold fingers grip me tight And not want to let up for the rest of the night. Footsteps behind me make me increase my pace; In the window’s reflection, I see a dead face. I hear spectral laughter, my heartbeat increases, And fear makes me sweat, and want to go to pieces. I feel the small hairs on the back of my neck Prickle and stand up like sailors on a deck. The air turns cold all the sudden it seems, And then I hear blood curdling screams Of people who’ve been taken before their time And search for whomever committed the crime.   (c) 2010 by John T. M.
