The Monster Within Me

The Monster Within Me

A Poem by MusicLove93
"

Feeling like you're about to crack and not knowing what will spew out

"

I feel monster deep within me,

Longing to be free.

A force of infinite power,

Itching to make the whole world cower.

 

This monster deep inside

Yearns to make you run and hide.

To crush and crumble

Anyone who gives me trouble.

 

I feel a monster deep within me.

It’s fighting to break free.

This, I know to be fact, not myth,

It’s a force to be reckoned with.

 

Not a day goes by

Where it doesn’t try

To break open the cage and snap it’s chain,

So it may be free to inflict its pain.

 

I feel a monster deep within me.

It’s close to breaking free.

My deepest fear is coming to be

That that monster is really me.

Oh, god, let's hope not! Tell us about this monster. What does it look like? What does it feel? More importantly, what does it want? Can it be reasoned with or does it reason with an insane logic known only to it's kind? What will you do if that's the case? Destroy it outright, lock it away and hope it never escapes or perhaps just try and run away?

Vow! truth and power both together in this work. Nice write!

This sounds a lot like bottled up aggression hidden behind a smile...lots of passive aggression getting to the breaking point where you feel the fibers of the threads of your patience finally starting to fray and detach to the point where you become detached. Very well structured and I especially love the ending stanza. Wonderful work here

..this poem is very deep and it may symbolize anything

Oh, this is great! We all have this side of us, that we fear is the biggest part of us, that we cannot control. We fear it will be unleashed on the world and then what?? I really like this piece!

I love this poem because it speaks truth about human nature. We all have this natural "monster" inside us trying to get out, but we choose to fight it and choose goodness. Great poem!

We all have monsters hiding. Negative thoughts and actions we desire to do and should not. I like the description and the battle to keep the monsters at bay. A strong ending to the excellent poem.

This is amazing! I love your rhyme pattern and your choice of words were all very fitting! The principle and point is very clear and using "monster" to compare with what you feel inside is a great way to illuminate your point. Very well written!

You are the cage enclosing the monster and your will is the lid that's locking it away. Your owned the monster, as in a circus-you are the trainer of the lion. You can tame it:)

This is a very expressive write. Intense and heavy and I like its clarity. Good job!
