The Beast Is Just Under My Skin - Poem by Scarlet .....

for my beast is right under my skin
it is all I have left
I laughs when I’m in pain
for I can feel it growing
it sucks up all my tears
drinking them in
growing tear by tear
it is sucking in the darkness that drowns me
I can't stop it
I used to be able to stop it
but now I can’t stop what is within me
I hear it yelling
I can no longer block out its screams
its angry screams
for when I close my eyes
it shows me itself
it sits there and laughs at me
it points out all my mistakes
making me upset
making me worry
for now
I can no longer block any of it
it has grown too strong
it keeps say it will never give up
it will break threw my surface
it will soon be in control
I try my hardest to block out its plans
for those I never want to hear
but the more I let it upset me
the deeper I sink into the darkness
it can feel the dankness
it grows when its in darkness
so I must be strong
but all I keep thinking
is why don’t I just give up
for it will eventually win
so why not now
I can save myself from so much pain
every time I think this
it laughs
and laughs at me
o how wise, would be a wonderful choice
it never used to be able to talk
it has grown to much
to quickly
for I don’t think I have a chance at regaining control
and that is really starting to scare me

    dont let it scare you, its all mental, just dont focus on it, and u will feel relieved. look for the positive, and forget about the negative, its a waste of time (Report) Reply
