Taking Over

This evil makes it so hard
No matter what is the card
I try to push it away
So I don't listen to what it has to say
But it seems stuck to me
And won't let me be
This evil is strong
And makes me do wrong
It's arms are near
And that's what I fear
I hear all these lies
When I ask so many whys
I sit in the dark
There is a distant bark
Trees waver around
Branches make a hissing sound
Things have moved
All love was removed
Red eyes stare back at me
Is that really what I see
Am I loosing my mind
When is my life going to be realigned
What have I done
Has the devil won
Thoughts scramble in my head
As I lay in bed
Sleep does not take
I'm always awake
Try to talk
And I'll just walk
I can't keep telling you my secrets
They all lead up to regrets
I'm locking myself inside
It's me who you can't confide
I'm nothing but a monster
I'm an attempter
The evilness inside me
Is what I try not to be

This is a good poem, it shows the conflict of a person to try to not be evil, so good job with this poem! :D
