Dark Spaces

In the closet deep and dark
lies a monster within the walls
in the night hours he makes a call
to whom will he leave his mark

he hides deep within your mind
playing games of hide and seek
do you really want to take a peek
disturbing thoughts you might find

within the labyrinth corridors
this monster has many schemes
creates various twisted scenes
gray and dark mesh in horror

can you out play his witty game
here I am,  where are you
lace up your running shoes
no one really remains the same

within the monster of shame
we all fall prey to fright
in the dark hours of night
struggling to remain sane

  1. Nice rhyme and flow
    At your show
    As those eyes glare
    And certainly stare
    Those monsters can be of our own making
    As the legs start shaking

    1. Hi Brian,

      It is true that closet holds some skeletons for sure and will come out when you least expect it..better keep that door under lock and key. Thanks for stopping in to read.

  3. I like the depth in the last stanza. And how you move from a little lighthearted rhymes to that end is very good.

  4. Nice approach to these beasts we all have to face eventually. And why is it worse at night? Good job.

    1. Hello,

      Interesting question. Why do these monsters surface more at night? Thank you for the read and reply.

  8. I just saw a Picasso exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. That "closet deep and dark," must be were Picasso found his genius. On another note, having the courage to face that place in our psyche can bring balance and healing.
