The Beast

The Beast

A Poem by ~Wandering Soul~

How I describe the darkness of the depression that lives in me

There is a beast that lives in shadow
That haunts me day and night
Creating misery and destruction
The beast takes such delight

There is a parasite within me
That feeds upon my soul
Injecting me with emptiness
So as to take control

There's a darkness that's inside me
Devouring more of me each day
Feeding on all happiness
Leaving my body to decay

There's a deadly beauty to this beast
A twisted sweetness to its tongue
It hypnotises me into submission
These tears just feel so wrong

There's a screaming in my head
Growing ever louder with the beast
Driving me to the edge of madness
All rational thought has ceased

There's a silence that's so deafening
It leaves me blinded and alone
I cut and scratch and bleed it out
For it is all I have ever known
