Monsters Roar Inside Me


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2008 with permission of the Author.

I'm closed up ready to burst.
Every freakish thought tingles inside me.
My feelings want to escape but they live in silence.
They can't find a way to morph into words,
Words that make people understand,
Words to make people feel.
Step inside my head for a moment,
Take a walk with my crazy thoughts,
Let them explain to you what it feels like.
Hold hands with my monsters.
