I think this poem relates to all of us in one way or another. We hide something inside of us from everyone around us. This is the little demon that hides inside my head.

The One Inside

In my head you cannot see

The messy haired monster I call me

In my head I locked away

An aggressive soul who's far from sane

She'll scream inside

and pull her chains

But on my face

You can't see her pain

She'll die a thousand times inside

But on my face I'll never cry

One day she'll come out to play

I'll become the monster I locked away

And she'll wreck by progress in just a day

And I'll be trapped amongst my shame

For the monster is me and I am her

Though the rules of life she cannot learn...

But when she locks me in her cage

And shows my friends her awful rage

They tell me that I have changed

But it's a lie...

For the girl they see is the one inside

excellent writing; it's both haunting and melodic. I love it content-wise as well; I can relate. :)

:) Yeah, in one way or another, everyone you see probably has something deep inside that they hide away from other people. And thank you so much for your kind comment! :) xx

We humans are truly twisted creatures, anyone who denies having "evil" thoughts at least once in a while is a liar.

I can relate to your poem, because my "inside friend" is pretty powerful and quite crafty. Great Job.
