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.

Haha. Yeah, I took him down. Creepy still but not as frightening. Thanks.

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.

The effect of not being creepy, that is.

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. :)
