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
