Monster In The Corner.

Monster in the corner

It is  hiding in the corner

Nipping at my ear

Making me a loner

Filling me  with fear.

Taking  joy, in clawing at my heart

Repeating all it’s venom inside my head

Giving not a shit  for me tearing me apart

Picking at all my scabs, I am wishing I were dead.

Laughing at my sorrow

Enjoying all my grief

It has stolen  my tomorrow

Denying  my  souls relief.

    That sounds painful Willow.

    Although dark and deep, this is a beautifully written poem. I do wish there was a “this is an amazing piece” button instead of a like button however. 🙂

    Been there, felt that many many times… love the way you worked through the pain to pen this. Wonderful job.

    If there’s one good thing that can come from pain it’s astounding creativity. This is a perfect example. Well done, Willow. 🙂
