Seeing Things

Seeing Things – a scary poem for kids.

Seeing Things

I’m not afraid of snakes, or toads, or bugs, or worms, or mice,
The things that girls are scared of, I think are awful nice.
I’m pretty brave, I guess; And yet I hate to go to bed,
For, when I’m tucked up warm and snug and when my prayers are said,
Mother tells me “Happy dreams!” and takes away the light,
And leaves me lying all alone and seeing things at night.

Sometimes they’re in the corner, sometimes they’re by the door,
Sometimes they all just creep and crawl across the bedroom floor;
Sometimes they come when I’m asleep, sometimes when I’m awake
So softly and so silently, they make me scream and shake.
Sometimes they are as black as ink, and other times they’re white
But color makes no difference when you’re seeing things at night.

Once, Mother caught me being bad, fighting in the street,
And Father sent me up to bed without a bite to eat.
I heard some noises in the dark and up my ears did prick
Those things were gathered all around and planning something sick.
I was so very scared that time, I got an awful fright
It’s always when I’m bad that I start seeing things at night.

Lucky thing I’m not a girl, or I’d be scared to death.
Since I’m a boy, I duck my head and then I hold my breath.
When I hear something horrible, crawling up the stairs
I promise to be better and I always say my prayers.
I’m certain that’s the only way that I can make it right
When I’ve been very wicked and start things at night!

And so, when other evil kids tempt and coax me into sin,
I try to squash the devil’s voice that urges me within.
At night the things creep closer and they aren’t very nice,
They want to eat me up without even thinking twice!
Eventually these evil things will drag me out of sight
I hope I don’t keep doing wrong, and seeing things at night!

    @residentevil5589 and @queen of chills
    Cool! @queen I don’t think she’s a demon, I think it’s possible you might be able to see ghosts, and she’s just reaching out to you. Has anyone else seen her? You might be phsycic, like not fortune teller phsycic but like able to see spirits. @resident I dont think the scratching is paranormal but the Japanese girl in your closet might be a residual haunting. Is your house old? Do some research on your house and try to find out if anything
    good or bad happened in the house, or if any Japanese females ever lived there.

    ther’s a little demon girl in the closet somtimes she follows me downstairs and watches over my shoulder while i’m on the computer she’s here right now… but I don’t mind her because she’s been my “imaginary friend” since i was little

    i honestly see things at night. i see a japanese girl in my closet at my moms, and i don’t know what keeps scratching in my closet at night at my dads, so i have to keep it blocked so it dosent find me.
