Monsters in my closet

Monsters in my closet

there are monsters in the closet Ma
yes, my closet
do you have some too

i hear them breathing
especially at night
the perfect fright time
is night time
even if the Sun is out
or is that the Son

there are monsters in my closet

i have seen quite a few of them
in my day
what say you
have you had the opportunity
to meet them
greet them
have a seat
and speak with them

they say we are the ones
who complete them
and they thanked me for
not deleting them
replete, don’t you think
i do

yet in spite of their gratitude
their life long attitude
is the servitude
of me,
yes me
you see
they make for my certainty
for would i be
who i am
Monsters in my closet ?
would you ?

they are daunting
in their haunting
as they reflect upon us
so we can detect within us
our fears
our doubts
our bouts with our humanity
and our divine sanity
that is locked
in our self made asylums
whose walls are
waiting to be tore down

and the clowns that we are
we parge the holes
and cracks
to keep them whole
like we are under attack
and we are
by that
of our own villains
and enemies
can’t we see ?
what we do to our “me”
profundity is profound
