Home Sweet Home by Elizabeth Cash

Home Sweet Home
Elizabeth Cash

Release Date: October 2017

Monsters don't hide under your bed or in your closet.
They don't jump out of the darkness and scare you.
They don't masks and tattered clothing.
They don't wait for you to fall asleep to give you nightmares.
They stand in front of you. 
Smiling. Holding your hand.
My monster has dictated my entire life. 
He lurks in the scariest part of my mind 
because I refuse to acknowledge who he is.
I haven't seen him in seven years, 
but just the mere thought of him
 brings me to my knees in fear.
I used to think he loved me at one point, 
but that thought is never enough
 to salvage what he has left of me.
An ounce of love from him
is worth a pound of hate from the Devil himself.

Wanna know what I used to call this monster?
