My Fear Is in the Cupboard

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.

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. :)
