My Monster Is You...

Staying awake in the middle of the night

All because of a simple fright

No, not a monster under my bed

Or an imaginary creature in my head

Simply memories of you

That I can't keep away no matter what I do

They follow me into my dreams and tear me apart

Even though there isnt much left of my heart

It kills me to say sleep used to be my safe haven you know

But you took that from me and what left do I have to show

I've cried over you so much these last few weeks

I try to be strong but all I can think is 'no you're too weak'

I can't eat and sleep isn't possible now

But I want to fix myself but how?

Everyone has a monster that they have to face

Another moster maybe from the same place

That monster can hurt you more than anything

I know to this i should probally be traverse

But I have seen it first hand

That some of our lives take place in no man's land

Everyone has a monster whether it be secret or not

It's something everyone has got

And thats not new

But I do have to admit my monster is you...
