The Monster Within Me

So, I wrote this a couple years ago when I was in a very dark place. Although I no longer am facing the same struggles as I was while writing this, I still have my issues and I think everyone can relate to one line or another in it.

I am happy to say that I am a happy joyful person today, but none the less I still am proud of this poem. So here it is.

The monster within me,

transforms my outside into my insides, 

The crippling sight of the horror I feel,

makes me feel hollow.

If only I wasn’t the only one to see it.
My black eyes fade over themselves,

the demon eating my soul is revealed,

I look into the mirror at myself as I scream,

but nobody hears.
I so badly want to yell out every feeling I have ever felt, 

just so somebody can relate,

But no noise comes out.
