The Monster In Me

I look in the mirror
And what do I see?
My greatest fear;
The monster in me.

Obsessed with a dream,
It felt so close.
I always knew
I wanted it the most.

What it took from me
To get to my dream,
Was my humanity.
None left, it seemed.

The monster didn’t care,
For my friends.
Many of whom we hurt.
We took them close to their ends.

I look in the mirror.
I don’t see myself.
The evil smiles back.
The evil in myself.

The monster has now gone.
My sanity returned.
I now have control
Of the emotions it stirred.

But at what cost?
What they didn’t see,
Was that the monster itself
Almost got me my dream.

In a sad little corner,
I hide in shame.
Fantasies will be memories.
And I’m the only to blame.
