This demon can crash into your life out of nowhere. It is frightening to face, but with all of Lanesra's strength, they to find so many ways to defeat it. The big problem with this, is that their demon always lurks right behind them; ready to pounce once it senses the slightest bit of weakness. Will there ever be a time where Lanesra can be prepared to fight this monster?

I need to say it.

I must say it.

For the creature that crawls on my ceiling, will jump down like the Babadook.

I love you 20_15_14_25.

I love you too.

If I don’t say it, it will get me.

It will consume me.

Standing above me.

Grinning.

Staring.

It won’t stop.

It won’t leave me alone.

It wants me to break, to be torn apart.

And it will do anything in it’s power to do so.

You’re ugly.

You’re weak.

No one cares about you.

What’s the point in living?

Its weapon is like a needle.

Small, but painful.

Penetrating my vulnerable skin…

Blood secreting to the surface.

It will do anything to fight against its’ enemy.

The small but powerful enemy.

The small round warrior fights against the demon whose claws cling onto my head.

Forcing every horrible thing into my brain.

Doing it’s best to get me weak.

Doing it’s hardest to push me to the breaking point.

It will do anything to get me to crush my own heart.

It will do anything to be in control.
