Only Inhuman, Not Inhumane

Only Inhuman, Not Inhumane

A Poem by Clara Kevie

A beautiful dark little poem written from the perspective of a monster in pain.

I am only inhuman
I am not inhumane
Darkness comes in
When you cause me pain

My extremities twitch
My tentacles wallow  
I'm not a witch 
I lay down low

My tail you've seen
But not the tale that counts
Eyes are always keen
So I don't wander about 

I trudge, begrudgingly
Scared of my own movement
Why am I not free?
What have I to repent? 

I am not inhumane
I am only inhuman
As you cause me pain
More darkness comes in
