Eye (I) Monster - Poem by AISWARYA T ANISH

Last night, I saw a monster.
First it was just a shadow
By degrees it became clearer and clearer
Finally it stood out
Clear as clear can be.

Handless it was, really handless
With a shock I knew
That it was legless too
Yet, it was standing straighter than straight
In lieu of a head, all it had
Was an eye unconnected with its body
A most grotesque figure indeed

I was floored, was rolling on all fours
Thought the monster had me down
My eye shutters were shut tight
And a great struggle I undergone opening them
No sooner the shutters fell open
The monster had vanished
In its place I saw an ‘ i ’
In the book that had me sleep awhile.

(I wrote this when I was studying in 3rd standard. When I was studying my lessons I had this eye monster trapped in my mind. I modified this after a while.)

    WOW! To be inspired by the shape of an alphabet, a symbol of ego, when most of us would have been at play. Indeed a treasure, your poem shows your potential and talent. Express your thought and emotions as poems and polish them at leisure into brilliant pieces of poetry. I love this work totally.

    Dreams can be so real when we are in its clutch.
    I had many experiences of unimaginable dreams.
    Your dream is of a troubled mind.
    Troubled mind will see such dreams.
    Your language is nice and marvellous for your age.
    In the years to come we hope to see nice works
    from a poet in the making. All the best.
