Today’s sentence: “I’m sure it was all a dream.”

Today’s prompt: “There is nothing under your bed.”

Pointless, the girl’s sobbing

Calls for “mama!”

“There is nothing under your bed,”

Her mother said, tiredly.

Child continues gulping tears

No words coherent.

“There is no monster under your bed,”

Her mom said, arms folded… “Just

Your slippers and some dust.”

Daughter weeps, inconsolable.

“I’m sure it was all a dream”…her

Mother was irritated, longing for

Rest.  “Sleep now,” she tossed

Over her shoulder.

But it wasn’t a dream…not exactly

A monster under her bed…it was

Daddy, who’d whispered, “don’t tell

Mommy…you’ll make her very mad”.
