Tell me what you think :)

Animal In Me
Tears roll down my cheeks,
Why on earth do I do this?
The wind blows my hair to hide my face,
It can't conceal my feelings.
Racking sobs shake my body,
Inside I am dying.
To be nothing,
Or to be no one.
I put up with this shit day after day,
The monster inside of me grows.
Waiting, Lurking in the shadows in my soul,
Ready to strike out on an unsuspecting victim.
That victim is you,
You never know when I'm going to strike or attack.
It makes you vunerable,
Always walking on egg shells around me.
I want so bad to destroy it,
To demolish this demon inside.
But I can't,
It is a force stronger than me.
And I am a simple weak person,
Too frail to carry on.

Sounds like you have a demon inside you that attacks when you do not want it to. A good poem I liked it
