Monster Inside

We're all monsters...

Monsters searching, still searching

For a new victim to devour

I can not begin to explain the terrors I've seen

With this new wisdom I've encountered

 

Lurking, ever so quietly in the shadows

I could never drop this veil

My own self-conscious is hollow

Tapping the keys...writing my failures

 

I can't show my true self

Declining slowly, 

There goes my health

Left in the dark, lonely

 

I'm disgusted by this

What is this that have I become

Still a fragment of my wounded heart

Desperately wants to embrace

This deep, dark part me

 

Every day I mask myself

With a fresh, friendly face

So my loved ones

See me for who I once was...

It's becoming more bleak

 

Thoughts spiralling into 

Intricate arrays of disaster

Would this ruin their image

Of this darkness lurking in my soul?

 

Some days I just want to drop dead

But why should I part?

There is still hope to feed off of

Still countless angels to avenge

 

Inside us, this brokenness...

Our demons will presson on

Until we fall hoplessly

Clinging onto a non-existent edge

 

The only option available at the time

Could it be I must surreneder?

Or so you thought... 

Take this as a reminder
