First they whispered

from under my bed

‘ come and find us’

they hissed

with ice in their blood

and fear in their veins

” Go away ” I said

and they did.

” Come and find us “

They whispered

when I was lost in thought

driving my car, taking a walk

” Go away ” I said

and they did.

” We’re going away “

they said

” We will leave you alone, it’s what you want  isn’t it? “

” No ” I hissed with ice in my veins

” Don’t leave me alone. Stay with me forever”

I offered

as I slid into the dark

under my bed.
