The Monster.

The Monster.

A Poem by A Risen Heroine.

There's living a monster within us.


The Monster

Ain't a monster happy people know of

It rips my flesh open

Eating up my bleeding heart

“The Monster from within

Is nothing more than talk.”

That Monster, the evil from within

Is nothing more than my darkest urges

An urge that will stick to me forever in time

It’s like a parasite

It’s draining me, to grow, it feeds on me.

Many kinds of monsters. Need a dream catcher and quick feet to stay ahead of them. I like the emotion and feel of being used and drained in this poem. Thank you for a excellent poem.

Like this one. Short but punches at the point. Like to see this expanded.

Love the analogy of it being a parasite. Very dark, I love it!

I think if I'd read this before hearing about the massacre in Norway It might have affected me less, but now ... it's quite scary to think how much truth there is in your poem. Terriffic writing!

The monster is the "urge" within that person. Its like a parasite that we can't seem to get rid of and as much as we try, it won't go away. I love how you give it a character as if it means a significant thing. Its unbelievable the description you give it especially when you add the last sentence, "It's draining me, to grow, it feeds on me."
