I can’t let anyone in there yet
I might die before I let anyone in there
Where my deepest secrets lie bare
There is a monster I’ve kept caged
My rib cages grow thinner with its clawing rage
Begging and pleading to come out
How long can I hold it from the light of the day?
Those who see a glimpse run away screaming
Those who haven’t seek with smiles gleaming
Not knowing that the devil rests there
Is one that instills fear.
It is a part of me I can’t deny
But about its existence, I can’t but lie
People are curious creatures once they know
They will go looking for treasures where there’s foe
So I bury this darkness beneath blinding light
Preventing its resurgence, a herculean light
But I’m hopeful one day the demon becomes the world angel
Because soon gone is the ability this evil to keep.
