You called me,

frantic, in the night –

you'd been screaming silently

from your nightmares.


You called me,

to decorate your dreams –

to come inside

and wield my skill.


I bring with me

little purple flowers

with bright yellow stars

captured in the center,

and tuck them

in the dark corners.


I bring with me

fairy lights

with little coloured shades

glowing pastel

and string them

along on the monsters.


Your eyelids flutter,

you start to yawn,

my job is done,

payment wise,

I'll collect

another night.
