These monsters inside
From which I can not hide
They feed me lies
And make me cry
And through those tears
Come my deepest fears
Who have come to feast
On my sanity

When my sanity is gone
They feed on my health
When health can't be worse
They start to feed on my sense of self

My sense of self is tampered and gone
My heart bruised and so are my lungs
My mind a blur
And soul dim
I hug my demons
And let them in

Come in I say
I'm no longer hiding you away
For if I do this shall be my last day
So come on out
Scream and shout
For you are my demons
That I can not help but love
For you are with me in this darkness
And stay with me through the sun

  • Comment from author about the poem: This was just a short poem I wanted to make, personally I don't like it just because of the way it sounds when read aloud but other than that I'm okay with it I guess. Once again sorry it's on the darker side.
