It lingers in the background

and although I cannot see it

I can feel it

its presence is unwelcoming


It waits…

for my most vulnerable moment

to attack

and when this moment

finally comes

I cannot fight it

For it is all too late

as it has already consumed me

I lie there in paranoia

desperately screaming for help

But no one can understand

because this monster

lives inside of me

I am this monster
