Darkness Lurks This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Corner of the room,

See it?

It's there, behind the dresser.

Don't stare, don't look too long.

It sees without sight, moves without motion.

See it?

Resembles one of those scary monsters,

Except ... just not the same.

Not putrid or heinous or evil,

Not ugly or malignant or fisty?

See it?

It's harmonious and inviting,

Translucent and shady,

Appealing to all the senses.

It's darkness, and it lurks.
