The Animal

The Animal

A Poem by Draven

I can feel you within me, part of me.
Watching, waiting, lurking among
the thoughts of my mind, taking over.
Your hunger is never to be satisfied,
feasting on demons and angels alike.
Your lust does not discriminate.
But know that your days are numbered.
I am going to kill you.

Author's Note

Altho perhaps it isnot best to post such a thing online, but I am human, and no longer ashamed of my addiction. I have been viewing the stuff nearly every day for 5 years and now am over 2 weeks clean. I give my thanks to Morgan, as she is the strength within me to do what I otherwise never could.

First of all congratulations for having the strength to face your addiction and the bravery to try and defeat it. Second this made me feel like I had a small view of the battle addicts face everyday...amazing work...

To defeat the beast within... Ever going battle for most, but it's not just addiction that it feeds off of, be mindful Luke, being human has many emotions whirling inside, but which one is of no use ... Which can you discard? Lol, love star wars , sorry for the geeky reference.

This is a confession and I believe you...

It's fear that darkens and consumes... But it can be have an aha light bulb moment, realizing you are the master to your own existence, your thoughts and emotions should be under your command...

I totally got carried away with this review, anyhow, well written. Kudos.

This is such a powerful call out to the addiction. The animal within. Crush it. Kill it. It is only a prison holding you back from true potential. Incredible and inspiring. Thanks and take care.
