Aliens and teddy bears
Occupy the mind at night
Hidden deep below the stairs
Extinguished of all light
Visitations from monsters
Hesitation, flight or fight?
Circled like a table of mobsters
Pistols drawn below the surface
Trapped like a tankful of lobsters
Claws made useless on purpose
Choices in all directions
Struggling through it all like a circus
Fists up and smile wide
Life wasn’t meant to come with a guide.
