No, you don't have fangs or claws, 

But you are the monster 

Lurking in the shadows 

Filling my mind with negativity 

Hurting me 

And in turn hurting everyone around me. 

Anytime I see you I want to run home, jump for cover. 

You are the skeleton hiding in my closet. 

Begging me to shut the door and forget I saw the real you. 

You are the beast who's always hungry 

For my heart. 

Don't you see you are in my nightmares? 

I hate it when you say you've dreamed of me. 

I don't want to dance with you, 

Or hold your hand. 

Please leave me be. 

Please let me free. 

No, you dont have fangs or claws. 

But you are the monster lurking in the shadows. 

The one with the red hot eyes, 

And horrific face. 

That I see only in my dark days. 

Every day i'm with you.
