Mellow To Monster - Poem by Jesse Overton

The stream of tears flow
Every wound ever sustained
Every time my heart was shattered
Every time my feelings were bound
The river gets deeper than the time before
I'm drifting away in all this pain
Tears collect over the years
Beasts are set free and anger takes its turn
Savage thoughts taint my mind
What have i become
Looking into these deep, dark, brown vengeful eyes
I'm on a journey to correct my wrongs
Destroy him before he destroys me
I'm my own worst enemy

    Great poem indeed,
    I'm exactly the oposite of that, I wouldn't have the courage to hurt my beloved one on my pure conscienceness.
    Still, great poem.
