File This Under Disgrace - Poem by Verona Valentine
He is the monster in my nightmares.
He is the monster in my closet.
He is the monster under my bed.
He is the monster in the dark alley.
He is the monster in the darkness.
He is a monster.
And filthy monsters deserve to suffer for eternity.
When I close my eyes I could see him sneering.
Every time I’m alone I could hear his breathing.
When somebody touches me I feel him crawling under my skin; groping, touching, tarnishing my innocence.
I can feel him hurting me; forcing his filthy self into me.
I could hear him laughing.
I could see his eyes looking at me like his prey; his next helpless victim.
I feel his slimy tongue roaming over my body.
I feel him taking hold of me.
No matter how hard I try I could never remove him.
Never remove his skin, his smell, his voice, his filth.
Every time I run I could feel him chasing.
Every time I scream I could feel him coming closer.
And every time I could feel myself drowning.
And this is what it’s like to live everyday like your life is a living nightmare.
