The Monster Inside


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.
