The Monster You Keep Inside

jake allen sharp

Ignore the monster but it won’t go away

Its there in the shadows at the end of each day

It’s the part of you that you try hard to hide

Made of the darkness you bury inside

It is the feeling that weighs on your mind

It is a beast that you keep confined

Scratching at your skin it tries to break free

To consume every shred of your humanity

Careful to keep the beast in it’s cage

You feed him the words you wrote on a page

Words written in with blood from your soul

Close eyes and sleep, the monster is under control
