the monster in the dark

•ӝ•

always there ~

felt rather than seen
manifested in fear…
gripping one’s heart
so tight
it’s impossible to breathe

•ӝ•

always there ~

in the knowledge
that happiness
won’t last…
can’t last…
it’s not deserved

•ӝ•

always there ~

in the back of  the mind
constantly
eating away…
eroding confidence…
until it’s merely bravado

•ӝ•

always there ~

ready…
waiting…
hungry
to take control…
to sabotage

•ӝ•

always there ~

insecure…
defensive…
arrogant…
hurting anyone
who gets too close

•ӝ•

always there ~

the monster
in the dark…
the monster
who is
me

  1. How true that we all live in fear of ourselves, sometimes we are our worst enemies.
