Saying Your Name By Taylor Pearson

5 Jan

 

Saying Your Name

 

Names called out down the hall,

Down the stairs, and through your wooden door

Which you keep cracked along with

The closet, in defense against monsters.

You scream in your unconsciousness

Because you’re trapped in a fantasy.

But the darkness is your ally

Because the world we are in is much scarier.

Every once and a while I put

The monsters in their place

Because I am your hero in the night

And in the day. Saying your name gives me

A freight, nonetheless, especially when you

Do not answer because, little brother,

I am your protector.
