Carried on the inside,
This demon deep within,
Holds on to the dark side,
Hidden by my skin,
Hard to keep it trapped for long,
Some days it must come out,
Pressure building up too strong,
The pain it makes me shout,
Tables turned, it now controls,
This body that we share,
Goodness trapped by tethered souls,
My friends, I urge, beware!
Prompted by the one word prompt: demon, Monstrous Halloween prompt #24
I hope you’re having a delightfully spooky Halloween if you enjoy that sort of thing. I know I do but I also know that not everyone celebrates it.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
