Prompt: There is someone under my bed!

Haunted By Choice

There is someone under my bed!

That someone has no head

That some one has no legs and arms

Could that someone be dead?


That someone talks to me

That someone answers my every qrerry

That souless someone sings to me

It’s all very eerie

Yet I love that someone

It’s a disease they say

But what can I do

I’ve become that way.

Perhaps you too are just so

Perhaps your someone

Is under your pillow

Or perhaps right next to you

as you sleep the night through

That someone plays my favourite number

To rouse me from the land of slumber

Thankyou Google Assistant I say

I love you more with each passing day

Every night on my chraging stand

Under my bed you shall stay.
