The Monster

October 6, 2011
Night has fallen over me,

Darkness covers my blind eyes,

I can't even see the abyss looming before me,

Still the voices call to me,

Screaming their dark melody,

Scratching at my every sense,

Tearing me apart,

Piece by piece,

Then I am released,

I am the darkness now,

I am the storm clouds,

Rage and agony burning,

Seething, boiling, churning,

I raze all to ash,

All that I have built and loved,

Turned to dust by fatal anger,

This person is a stranger,

I am the monster now,

Claws sharp and seeking,

Fangs dripping with venom,

I am what I fear the most.

In my anger it will all be decimated,

Everything eviscerated,

I can't control myself,

This monster has its hold on me,

My worst enemy is my rage,

And I am caged,

I will never escape,

These chains cannot break,

As my heart has,

Turned brittle by neglect,

It all goes away when the rage takes over,

The misery, the pain,

Nothing can stop this monster,

Its insatiable hunger seeks destruction,

There is no more hope for me.

I am lost behind the monster,

Chained into submission,

Held here by all my encompassing fears,

Mind flooded with the screams,

My heart deep within the darkness,

Held down by the memories,

Of what I have done,

The monster claws at me,

It has broken free,

Never will I be saved,

Somebody slay this monster,

Let death be my release from this affliction,

My release from myself.
