Poetry Horror

I hid behind the sofa

Paralyzed in fear

I coward and I trembled

Knowing it was near

I wondered what had clattered

As I’d run away

I peaked around the corner

Not sure what to do

It kept creeping and crawling

Then I threw my shoe

It hit the target swiftly

And the threat vanished

I got up and understood

That I was the king

No one could defeat this beast

I craved one more fight

The adrenaline still there

In my eye a tear

Alas I got a towel

Since I’d spilt my beer

To think I’d been so scared of

What was just a slug
