How come when you need something the most- that's the time when you have to fight the hardest to receive it?

As I'm sitting here, in this box-shaped room, staring at my prey three feet away from me, I am anxious. This child, an innocent child, will die. She is nothing to me, nothing at all. When she wakes, only then will she notice my presence. She is sleeping calmly, probably dreaming sweet childish fantasies of blue skies and purple unicorns flying to see a magical princess. Little does she know that in a few short hours her rosey red complexion will fade away to meet a dull white color. Little does she know that the curls that surround her face will fade and cover a life-less dull face. Little does she know of her radiant blue eyes fading with the sunset. Unlike the sun, her eyes will never surface again.

~Little does she know of the monster I am~

This is the third time I've read this piece, and it still seems to me like the "monster" is trying to convince herself if her own cruelty. She says the girl doesn't mean anything to her, but I think she's someone different than how she portrays herself to be.

 I like how you write the piece from the villain's point of view. I could almost feel the mosnter about to the suck the baby's blood or something.

This was sublime. You leave a lot to the imagination and do it correctly at that. There are so many meaning behind this that once can draw out, so many differnt turns and twists to imagine in ones mind. Very interesting.

I like how you leave it kind of ambiguous.  I really thought it was a great piece of writing but maybe you could extend it a bit? then maybe it would have even more of an effect! You don't have to, but if you ever have a spare moment could you take a look at my work? thanks x

I really like this! Your word choice and imagery is fantastic, and you never actually specify how you are a monster which makes me want to read more. Although it sounds good at first, you use "Little did she know..." several times, I think if you changed the wording around a bit it might sound even better!
