A being that so many of us come in contact with, the mind is a strange thing,

I wrote this in about an hour over two days, in no way a masterpiece just a small insight.

The Monster in the dark

By Loki

 

 

You know the Monster,

He will tell me I am perfect just to see me fall,

He rises me up do drag me back down,

When I find my path,

He beguiles me toward the darkness,

I know not who I am,

I am not who he says,

I am not who I want to be,

If I struggle, 

If I fight,

He claws,

He Cuts,

He Pushes,

He goads me toward insanity,

I fight the urge to plunge,

I run to the end,

A blood soaked blade,

He grips it tight in my hand,

Replace the pain with another,

Replace his voice,

An ironic anodyne, 

I know not who I am,

I know who he is,

The monster,

The monster,

I fight,

I scream,

Nobody can hear me,

He blocks my voice,

He blocks me,

Fight against the beast,

The beast from another world,

He has come from my own negative ethos,

I lost my way,

That is what cleared the way for him,

Scared and alone,

He still stays,

How,

Oh how can I rid myself of him,

Push,

Push,

Push,

Only toward the end,

So many people know him,

So few stand against him,

A personal demon,

A 21st century demon,

A monster of our own fears,

Push,

Push,

Push me toward oblivion.
