Blindly thrust into creation
settled inside a strangers' arms
moments later cuddled and warm;
unaware of the wickedness to come.

Not able to recognize
the beast at a glance,
he wore a cunning disguise;
that concealed his existence.

Loved by many who did not notice;
feared by all with his venomous stare.
Why was I the only to see
the monster residing behind the flesh?

Sleep is an illusion that I must not succumb;
for if my eyes fall he will emerge.
A towering nightmare that hovers above,
I cannot scream; for destruction would follow.

Clean poetic take on the 'Eden effect' Judy. I like how it assimilates itself in various forms of your sleepless dreams.

Good read.  

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...

You have an insightful and clear way of thinking to unmask the evil who comes into your life. Love this "different" kind of poetical thought process.

Thank You! I appreciate your comments...   My wording in all my poems are definitely different, I'm never sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing, lol.

"Different" is diversity, relative to writing in general and poetry in particular. It's also my opinion that it's actually a valuable talent. So I'd say it's very good and never bad!
