A switch flips inside me;
My dark passenger is awake.
A hideous monster he is;
Holding the reins of my mind.
I feel a burning deep inside.
The fire of anger spews out of me,
And spreads its flares all over;
Devouring everything in my vicinity.
I feel him traversing my mind,
Sowing seeds of disappointment.
What I see through my inner eyes,
Is his reflection on my blood.
He builds gates of hell inside me,
Eating slowly away at my sanity.
I have to subdue him with strength,
To halt the onset of depression.
As his needles prick my heart,
A sadness comes over me.
I dig deep to find happy tidings,
And scare him away to a nook.
The monster never goes away,
But hides looking for his day.
Life’s battles are within us;
I’m my monster’s scourge.
