Jeff's PoemClose your eyes, it's time to rest.More Like This
Your parents say that sleep is best.
You're drifting off as they sing a song.
But your parents, they are very wrong.
This is when I slip inside.
In the darkness is where I hide.
You feel me there, now you are shaking.
Your life is now mine for the taking.
You open one eye, then the other.
You start to cry and scream for your Mother.
But that's the worst thing you could do.
Now I take your life from you.
I stab both your arms to start.
Then your stomach, then your heart.
You reach your small hand out to me.
You find it's getting hard to see.
You think about the life you had.
You softly cry for Mom and Dad.
I can tell you're scared, looking at me.
My eyelids burned so I always see.
A smile carved in my face, too.
So they know that I love what I do.
I'm not a freak, I'm not a creep.
I just want you to GO TO SLEEP!
