Wandering Scarlet

The Beast

It dwells within my spirit, body and mind
devouring my soul and spirit,
it leaves nothing behind

it hungers for destruction,
it hungers for revenge,
death to all,
it's the beast i must avenge,

it is my anger, it is my hate
i must destroy it
before it is too late,

if it is not defeated,
i will become a soulless salve
but do not be mis leaded,

it becomes harder to reject
it tempts my every step,
the beast i cannot neglect

the beast was once innocent,
he was once a child
put down and stepped on,
he withdrew from the world

now he is angry and wants to kill,
those terrible memories,
the blood of the enemies he wants to spill

but i cannot allow him to go any further,
its himself or those who did wrong to him,
but i cannot allow him to hurt her,
not the only thing he has ever loved...
