Mon Petit Monstre

I stopped checking for monsters under the bed because I realized they were inside of me...

Voici mon petit monstre

This is my little monster

Il est de taille moyenne et il est méchant

He is mean and he is vicious.

C’est bien de lui d’oublier mon anniversaire.

It is just like him to forget my birthday.

Et il ne dit jamais « Je vous remercie »

And he never says thank you.

Ensuite, il me dit, “Donnez-moi ton cœur.

Then, he says to me, “Give me your heart.

Ce sera un mariage de l’amour.”

This will be a marriage of love.”

“Oui? Non mais?” je demande.

“Really?” I ask.

“Oui, non mais” il répond.

“Really” he responds.

Mon souhait est de tomber amoureux.

My wish is to fall in love. 

Je voudrais bien être une princesse.

I want to be a princess.

J’ai pensé que mon souhait s’est réalisé….

I think that my wish just came true…

Mais maintenant, je souhaiterais qu’il s’arrête de parler.

But now I just wish he would stop talking.

Mais je sais que c’est de ma faute.

But I know it’s my own fault.

Il ne peut pas s’aider

parce qu’il est un monstre.

He cannot help it

because he is a monster.

Plus tard, j’ai regretté ma réaction instinctive.

Later, I wish I had followed my instincts.

Il m’a montré qu’il était.

He let me know what a jerk he was going to be.

Il m’arrivait de me demander comment était-il possible pour une femme comme moi se fiancer avec un mec comme ça ?

It made me wonder how a girl like me could ever be with an idiot like that?

Il a commencé en tant que mon petit ami,

mais, à la fin,

il n’était rien davantage que mon petit monstre.

He started out as my sweetheart

but in the end

he was nothing more than my little monster.

D’abord il a mangé mon coeur, puis après, il l’a vomi sur le plancher.

He ate my heart then vomited it back up on the floor.

Juste comme un petit monstre.

Just like a little monster.

  1. This is great. I love the way the heart breaker was being depicted as a monster cos truly he is.

  2. I love this. It is funny and enlightening. The line under the image will stick with me…. “I stopped checking for monsters under the bed because I realized they were inside of me…”
