No One Told

No One Told ~ Illustration by Patrice

No one told, no one said
the secrets hidden deep
beneath my childhood bed.

Monsters and thoughts
so deep
didn’t make sense
to a little child trying to sleep.

Only my mother and father
could keep
those things below
my mattress and my sheets.

Letting me just spend the night
counting sheep.
