?You should really put your demons on a leash before they put you on their leash.?


This is my contest entry for Brave owl's cool and creepy matter ideas contest.

It's quite creepy, weird and dark.

The darkness creeps in like oil in the sea

seeping into every crack, every split, every crevice

filling my body, halting my breathing;

the howling wind hushes any sound that could be heard

as I try to take in my surroundings, my vision blurred;

The streets showed no trace of human existence whatsoever

only sound that reached my ears, was of the muffled noises from down stairs:

The wall clock ticks at 3 a.m.

Signaling the arrival of the fiend.

 

 

Now, the eerie quiet of the night

No more cut me like a double-edged knife

As I could hear the monster rip off life

From the people that brought me into this ruthless world

I hear a blood curdling, piercing scream and one more,

The intensity rising with each one that followed

And I could imagine the monster's scaly body rubbing against their skin

Its boney hands pulling their hair

As it slid its fingers in between their lips,

forcing it down their throat,

Its every move marking how much loathe

it held within as it brings an end to the lives of the people I once called my parents;

And with a thump the bodies fall to the floor

But I make no move as I sit, curled up in a ball

 

The creaking of the door causes my head to turn around

As I'm met with pair of cold, black eyes beckoning to me

Its eyes fix on the blood dripping from my thighs

As its lips twitch into a devilish smile

"This knife it wants to slit you, you see

So do you think you can help me?"

And then in a swift movement the demon disappears

Into the dark corner of my room

That used to speak to me

Saying one fine day you'll be a part of me;

My eyes follow its shadow as I see a bloodied figure lying on the ground

In between a pool of crimson, her face similar;

Me.

 

Crawling, I make my way to the cracked mirror

And what I see is scaly flesh, boney fingers

and cold, black eyes staring back at me

My hands clutch to my heart in order to hear a beat 

But nothing other than a creepy nothingness surrounds me.

 

Restlessness takes over as my hands slowly grasp the knife

bringing it to my lips

As the red liquid drips onto my tongue

The metallic taste soothing my senses

It then dawns upon me

That the demon was no one else but me.

I have become a monster, a cannibal

The darkness has consumed me whole,

and it's shadows have filled my soul. 

 

Finally, the demons are free which I once held within

and now I'm out in search of another soul to live in.

 

For ages, my bones shall lie here,

 slowly turning to dust

my surroundings,

nothing but rust.

?They said destroy what destroys you 

But in order to destroy the monster inside me

I had to destroy myself

And I did. ?
