there is a monster living inside my head.

It’s old, ugly and feeds on pain..
fear and doubt it devours with relish
turns it into something beautiful

I can try and fight it,
keep it contained
leave its ramblings hidden from the world.

it refuses, fights back
grows stronger with each blow
I cannot win this battle

it leaves me wasted
emotionally drained, my words meaningless
I look in the mirror

and it stares back at me.
