Instead of posting thread after thread of poems, I'll just post them all here. I've been writing a lot lately, so I hope I have a lot to post soon. This first one is one I wanted to write for a while. The idea came when I was insanely depressed and I still feel that depression. It's just a way to express my feelings. Monsters In the middle of the night, I awaken, my body aching, hidden from the moonlight. It is a problem I cannot escape. My nightmares enjoy keeping me awake. When I sleep, there is no safety for me, no censors from my darkest fears. I only stand, maybe a weapon in hand to face the things I hate the most. The pain through my body is hardly bearable. And yet...my nightmare never seems to stop. Opening my eyes, leaving my bed a new Hell awaits my impending arrival. For these monsters are worse than that of myth and legend. They like to pretend they are human and these hateful creatures wish to see me fall. If I stand, they win. If I fall, I lose. My only realm of peace is in my nightmares. At least those monsters can't harm me. Comments are appreciate.
