Monster Within

  1. {This is a poem I wrote a year or so ago}

    Everyone has a monster that lurks inside,
    A creature with a dark design.
    If let loose, my greatest fear,
    Would harm all those I hold dear.
    Consuming pain with every breath,
    To give in would mean my death.
    So tired and beaten I fight on.
    It must not claim me as its pawn.

    But on this field devoid of light,
    Can I win an endless fight?
    Against the nameless sorrow and hate,
    Is loss my only fate?
    Confronted with this doubt I slip,
    I start to feel the monsters icy grip.
    My heart grows cold; my soul to fire,
    For a moment I entertain a dark desire.

    Emotions fade and turn to stone,
    As my body becomes the creature's home.
    With my hand he reaches out,
    I protest and shout.
    But listen he does not
    For I am the prize the monster has sought.
    Now trapped in a body no longer my own,
    I am helpless and alone.
