Going through a dark time in my life right now. I sat here the other day and this just ended up on paper.

I have a monster inside me
This monster has the same face as me
We share the same memories
This monster is cold hearted, ruthless, hateful
I keep him locked up in a cage
Sometimes he breaks holes in the cage and leaks out
Only twice has he ever broken out
Only once have I ever let him out

I have a monster inside me
His thoughts are dark and scare me
Sometimes I let him make decisions when I'm tired
Sometimes I sleep  and let him have a turn
But then I wake up and see who he has hurt
I cant undo the damage he has done

I have a monster inside me
I no longer want him to be
We fight for control everyday now
The struggle hurst us both and those around us
One day I seemed to have won

I no longer have a monster inside me
Because now I'm inside him...
