The Monster Inside

(11/10/2010)

Scarlet red, the carpet stain

While all the memories remain

The blades, they glimmer and glisten

Begging for me to answer their call, only to listen.

.

Deepest red, flows through their veins,

And slowly chaos inside me reigns,

To spill a few drops is all they ask,

Relatively a simple task.

.

Scurrying across the roof-tops

Tailing my victim below,

Unsuspectingly browsing the shops

If they could only know.

.

Their fate awaits in a darkened corridor

All alone they try to fight…

But they will fight no more,

And I contemplate if it was right.

.

Satisfied, I lie in wait,

But just until the monster's hunger pains,

Thus sealed is another's fate

For once again the monster reigns.
