We are not all monsters.
Some of us have just been caught
At the wrong time, in the wrong light.

We did not mean to snarl, snap, snip or even bite.
Our bad manners, bad behavior
Surely we know better, you've taught us better.

I slink back into my cave
To patiently wait out my transformation
Until you couldn't even imagine a time

When I was a monster.


  1. Ah, if only I could say this doesn't describe my behaviour at times...but it does. It so does.

  2. i can be a bit of a monster at times!!

  3. Great writing! The transformation has, at times, been embarrassing. But I am uncivilized enough to have enjoyed it on occasion....time and a place for everything. Although at least once I wanted to crawl into a hole and die (I was a teenager).

    Is fluorescent lighting while trying on a swimsuit the wrong light at the wrong time??? :)

    PS - Did something happen or are you just sharing awesome writing?

  4. Heehee....with my mood sometimes, I wish I can stay in that cave for a long time:D
    Happy Friday, Rooth! For the record, I could never picture you being all snarky.

  5. Haha I love this. We all have a cranky little monster inside of us!

  6. Ahh, I think that we can all relate to this at times!

  7. oh, yes, once in awhile. have a happy weekend ruth, don't stay in that cave too long. xo

  8. This is wonderful. I do remember being a monster, I still am at times. I also have to remember my little monsters are in the process of going through a transformation all the time. Thanks for the reminder.

  9. This is so true. We all have our moments. Hopefully this one doesn't last long for you.

  10. Haha, so cute! I think everyone´s allowed to be monsters sometimes! :-)
