Child’s Play

Our childhood monsters
call to us
from dreams
and memories found
in farthest corner
of the mind
They have grown strong
and cunning over time

While we thought we were
ignoring them,
forgetting
them, instead
we were letting
them grow
evolve
in the dark

Now they are almost
unrecognizable
Their power
over us
is subtle
convoluted
but oh-so strong
