A Monster

I lay here under the covers trying not to make a sound. Hiding from the monster hoping not to be found. Then I hear its footsteps and I can feel my heart start to pound. I can hear it getting closer and I can feel it in the ground. I hope it doesn't find me I am laying perfectly still. I wish it would just go away but I know it never will. It is always here, day or night. It comes for me no matter what, in the dark or in the light. It is pointless to put up a fight. I try to be invisible, I try to stay out of sight. It(He) is so much bigger than me why does it(he) think I am a threat. What does it(he) want from me? Why do I make it(him) so upset? Its voice can be heard no matter where I may be. It's like it is always just one step behind me. I'm always looking over my shoulder I wish I could be sat free. Why can't anyone else See what I see?
