I Am No Monster

[2 Min Read]

Sharp knives protrude from my limbs, but I don’t mean to scratch.

Strong spears from my gums, but I don’t mean to bite.

Sprinting at the earliest sign of danger, but I don’t mean to startle you.

Though a natural-born hunter through and through, I certainly hope you can tell I still love you.

I greet you at the door when you return home to our den because I missed you.

I curl into your chest at night to keep you warm because I worry about you.

I bring you home my prey because I want to feed you.

Though I’m a natural-born predator through and through, I hope you know I still love you.

Enjoy my daily short stories? Consider checking out some of my larger projects like the 6 chapter teaser of my new book ‘The Pit!’

The Pit is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi original novel with a charter driven narrative. Follow Laura, a hot-headed vixen with a mysterious past, Liam, the natural-born leader who is deathly afraid of awkward social situations, Pete, a large intimidating man with a heart of gold, and others as they navigate old America in a supped-up RV!
