who is longing the monster

chapter 1
its calloused hands demanding more

from the broken body on the floor

 

its yellowed crooked teeth spitting out the words trapping her in a cage

only later to call her crazy in its outbursts of rage

 

its poisoned tongue wraps false images around the minds

of the joyful youth who once learned to be kind

 

the urge to prove the others wrong

is revealed through the monsters malicious song

 

the empty threats feed off of defeat

desperation the only thing it eats

 

for whoever  is longing the monster so dearly

do not let it fool you as it almost did to me, nearly.
