I’m friends with a monster

not from under my bed it lurks

for my bed is armed with

cuddly, fuzzy, lovable bears,

from the ceiling my stalker comes

as my eyelids flutter open

to view it disappearing into the walls

lighting the candles to

ward off its scares.


In my blue knit jersey it creeps

moving with dexterity, the formless

shape my bed approaches, for I sense it.

Reluctance not to open my eyes as

I scare it more than it scares me.


On my chest it innocently lays

as it wraps the jersey sleeves

around my neck, tightening the noose

paying careful attention to my eyelids

and heart palpitations.

“Happy Halloween Calib!!”, I shriek

Poof into thin air, its oblique

form dissipates.


Never name anything I

was taught; for friendship

will surely begin,

as its vision haunts me.

    ‘The vision haunts me’
    It could be a trap.
    Knowingly or unknowingly
    In an unavoidable situation.

      Unfinished business is what it has…once completed it will leave peacefully- if the living needs help, it comes whoever it was bonded to in life
