The little light that flickers

when you close your eyes
the void is there and waiting,
dreams drift off and hide in
corners watching to see
what lurks under the bed,
I think
dreams already know
what is there
for there is where the
monsters go
to chill out in the day until the night returns
and the dreams dream on to dream them all
away or not
as the case may be.
