The ugly monster

rears its head

and stares me straight in the eye.

I'm scared.

I know very few last

against such a demon.

This is the thing

people talk about

but they don't realize

it's the talk that feeds it.

Devouring all the words you speak.

I have contributed

to others falling to this demon.

Now just like I had

others turn their head

pretending they can't help

and I know I'll never last

against such a demon.
