My monsters thought
the bed was too creaky
and the closet too humid

So they took residence
inside of my heart
inside of my brain
inside of my
self.

I guess they thought
it was just dark enough
just dry enough
just cold enough
in here
to be
just right.

Your words give me chills. I love the line breaks and the repetitive patterns that give this poem its character. Succint is enough here to convey the depth of your meaning.
