Hidden Creature

The creature lives!
Its blood doth boil beneath my skin
with passion and carnal taste.

It burrows down
unseen by preying eyes
deep in arteries

Like a poison deep in me
it covers my soul, blackens my heart
strangling from within

the darkness will never go away
it is within me
the sadness that swims in my veins
are permanent
