The monster with curly brown hair

I opened my door, and what a scare,
I saw a monster with curly brown hair.
"What are you doing here?" I said, in fear,
Wishing he or I would disappear.
He glared at me with his seven eyes.
He grabbed my keys, to my surprise.
Shaking, I wondered what he would do
He turned round and round shouting I
should be in room ten.
It was my mistake, no need to pretend.
Through my stay he became my first friend.
