NATIONAL POETRY MONTH: Day 6
Not Afraid Anymore
I’ve never seen Star Wars through
when galaxies flew off the screen and I fell asleep.
One of us said it was the hero’s journey
who believes in heroes anymore?
My mother used to let me hold
things between my toes
to know what real fells like.
Nothing fits between them now,
not even you.
It’s only darkness.
I sleep with the lights on, the closet door closed
I’ve seen enough monsters.
