He’s in the cupboard—
He’s in the cupboard:
I stuffed his
Lifeless carcass there.
The knife yet bleeds
His thick black blood;
But he’s dead now:
I murdered Fear;
I killed that macabre sadist
And neatly stuffed the
Crumpled cadaver in the cupboard.

Hold the thought:
I hear him groaning.


The author's comments:
I used to be afraid of Chuckie. That is until I had a dream where I did what he normally does to his victims and stuffed him in the cupboard. After that, I never feared him again. That's what you have to do to fears. Face them boldly and conquer them.

The effect of not being creepy, that is.

Killed the fear, locked it in a cupboard....then the last line. Love how you built that suspense there...without being melodramatic or creepy. LOL.

Thank you. That's so kind of you to say. I'm awe-struck for your saying so. I thought maybe everybody would see it as a cheesy poem. Thanks. :)

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn’t understand the assignment.

This seriously left me awestruck!
