Hidden In The Dark

You can’t hide from me.

You can’t run from me.

You think you can, but you can’t.

I am a part of you.

I am the voice that poisons your thoughts.

I am the one that turns your dreams into nightmares.

I can bend you to my will.

I can make you stay in bed, what’s the point of getting up.

I can make you cry.

I can make you bleed.

I can make you say what I want you to say.

I can make you stay in the darkness to never see the light of day.

I break you down more and more!

I am the one that covers your mouth when you try to scream for help.

But, it doesn’t matter if you get help, I’ll still be there waiting for you to slip up!

Which you will! You’re a failure! I told you that!

I am the one that tells you that nobody cares.

I am the one that tells you that it’s pointless to tell others about me.

They can’t see me.

They can’t hear me.

Only you can.

I am the true monster that hides in the darkness.

I am not the monster you should fear that hides in your closet.

I am not the monster you should fear that hides under your bed.

I am the monster you should fear that’s in your own head!

Keep smiling that bright smile of yours.

It casts a very lovely shadow for me to hide!
