He comes to me mostly at night,
at least that’s when I came to know him best,
but lately he appears during the day.
I used to be afraid, but not any more,
although it can trouble me
or confuse me
or something when he’s following me around
and people think I’m a little bit crazy,
as if some imaginary friend or foe was with me.
He still makes me jump, you know—
that beast under my bed. – pn
