The Monster Inside Me
Sometimes I wonder if love is real.

Sometimes I question the simplest things.

Sometimes I'll wake up in the middle of the night,

Just to realize that no ones around.

No one to talk to.

No one to hug.

No one to save me from the monster inside.

The monster inside me that made me this way.

The monster that never would go away.

He stole my heart.

He took what was not his.

He never asked me if I wanted to live like this.

I never realized how much I cared,

About the people that showed me how to survive this way.

I don't think they chose to live the way they do.

But sometimes I'm not sure if there is anything they could do.

It is not simple to live differently,

When all you see is the worlds cruelty.

They don't show you whats good.

They like what is bad.

They planted it all inside your head.

So there is nothing to stop this.

There is nothing to end it.

There is nothing that could keep our kids protected.

all i can say its great thought in your poem, we all are beast (remind me Kafka's metamorphosis), i dont know wether we can avoide this beast or not. may be we should accept it then we may find some answer.

anyway, great insight in your poem.

Patty what a sad and heart wrenching piece.. I see so much inside your words and all seem to be a big question.. I like the use of your words. The way you are telling what is inside your thoughts, yet like in question form. All I know is there is love, as there are dreams. All out there are good till proven bad, and a hand is always offered once they know one is seeking it..


Keep the writes going for to us, they are all we have to let us know we still can feel..
