There are monsters afoot

They are everywhere

You can’t possibly kill them all.

Some you will sit and have dinner with

Fall madly in love with

Then realize what they are.

Some you will text

Until they say something terrible

Or somehow remind you

Of what they are.

Some you will raise

From birth

To adulthood

Then realize

What they are.

Some you will befriend

She’ll be like a sister to you

Then you’ll realize

What she is.

There are monsters everywhere

Make friends with them

Make love to them

Make them wish

They weren’t monsters anymore.
