Dark Crevices.

Little one, monsters do not sleep under your bed.
They prefer to procure the space inside your head.
And all those white lies your mother told you
Are from made up fairy tales she once read.

When you woke up and begged for her presence.
Shaking, snivelling and waiting for her to console you.
You never had the need to perform any form of penance.
As she would make them vanish by only uttering a sentence.

All those proverbs and warm words your mother sold you,
Are there to assure you when she is not able to watch over.
But no amount of prayers, dream catchers and four leaf clovers.
Can protect you from what prowls directly above your shoulders.

And all those white lies your mother told you.

Shaking, snivelling and waiting for her to console you.

All those proverbs and warm words your mother sold you.

Will not help when the demons decide to take a hold of you.

Kela Lewis-Morin
This was an idea I had in my mind today and I just had to try and write it down. I wanted to mess with the rhyme scheme and shift the line structure with some repetition. I always, well I think I write in the same way so I wanted just to try and explore different methods. I hope this makes sense and I hope you guys like it. I had my own personal reasons for writing this but I do not want to limit this piece with my perception. Let me know what you think guys :)

It's easy to  think you could have overcome one's fear when you never experienced it.
When that kind of fear takes control of you no deed can diminish it
And when These demons that took hold of you overcome your strenght
You can only pray for a way out that would ease your pain.

While reading this I was put in mind of a monster hunter or a magician or something, telling harsh truth to an apprentice.

The whole piece sort of sounds like a threat, but in truth this kind of information is more helpful; don't snivel and call for mother, hoping she can chase the monsters away, fight your own battles and hope like hell you can win them.
