Alright, so I was thinking about writing on a topic I've never in my life tried before... Monsters. The idea that monsters are not just in your closet or under your bed, but that in truth they are the memories that haunt you, the parts of your personality you wish you could change. This poem is really about the fear of your past coming back to haunt you.
Also for those who didn't know (which I would assume is most of you), the title Teratophobia is a fear of monsters (and childbirth and deformed babies, though I was more focused on the monsters).
Anyway hope y'all enjoy and I'm anxious to know what you guys think.
