"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

The monster living inside of my brain
destroys and destructs.
Driven by the ultimate insanity
that drains the life out of skipping
heart beats.

His claws,
evil with envy
scratching my skin into

and tender ears,

of a cruel criminal.
covering skin with satin

sheets of sorrow.
he craves as the
minute hand begins
to wander around the clock.
Leaping from patches of flesh
playing hide and seek
with the crawling insects.
Speaking to me
Through the forms of
self destruction
and glistening starlight
of eyes.

The beetles are stinging with swords.


to be hollow, like his heart.

To the heavenly heights. The choking grip

Leaving fingerprints pressed into my worn flesh.
