The Beast

Some times it trys to escape
to break down every wall i own
sometimes it trys to escape
when im hurt and all alone

so i chase it away with tears
though i chase it away with fear
at times it still consumes me
when no one else can hear

just when i feel it is calm
thats when you come along
and say that stupid word

try as i may it is to late
the beast has already heard

when it is done
im waiting in the ruin
sitting in the cold and all alone
thats when i comprehend

the beast and i are together
the beast and i are one

I really enjoyed the odd, illusive story to this poem. It makes the end very dark and intriguing. I think this is a well done. The flow needed a touch of work, but I think your focus was more the story and the meaning behind the words, and that aspect was beyond amazing.

Good job. Check out my work if you ever get the chance!
