Poem #128

I don’t like watching horror movies
because I lived in one.
I know monsters are very much real and
there’s something so human inside of them.
They just take and only give violence in return.
They have the “normal” person vibe but
behind closed doors they sow fear.
They are capable of destroying their own
flesh and blood. What’s more monstrous than that?
Why watch horror movies when there are
monsters roaming around us?

      1. My pleasure.

  4. There are never as many monsters as some would have us believe, and so often when confronted the monster just seems to melt away. We have to learn to confront monsters. A good piece with some interesting thoughts. Well done 🙂

  5. I love this, especially “there’s something so human inside of them.”

    1. That’s the scariest part!
