Transcribing my notebook

Written sometime in 2013?

I was told that even as a infant I did not sleep at night. Neither did I cry.

I was told, that when I could move around some, I would be found at the foot of my crib, under the covers. As if I was hiding.

Later I learned, on my own, that indeed I was hiding. I wasn’t afraid of the dark, I was afraid of what hid in the dark.

I love the dark, I love the night. I can hide in the dark and the night covers me.

But I still fear what comes in the night, the monsters under the bed.

I don’t like to sleep with a lot of covers. I tend to kick the covers off my feet and then dangle my feet over the edge of the bed. But not for long. I quickly pull my feet back because there are monsters hiding under my bed. Waiting to pull me down and under and then…

  1. I was more afraid of the monsters l lived with than the monsters under the bed or in the dark. I love the dark and yet last night l slept with one light on because l only slept for three hours due to that damn nuclear station attack. It wasn’t the dark that worried me.

  2. The first part is written beautifully although what you’re saying isn’t. I’m sorry for what you learned you were hiding from as a child.

    I understand the second part because I don’t dare let my feet dangle either!
