Poem: Honest Monster

image

This darkness
Burning cold
Deep within
I embrace
The only constant

I open
The doors
Let down my guard
Believe that there’s good
In this evil world
But
There is only cruelty
And betrayal

I should’ve known better
The hatred
Pure as sunshine
Now gives me light
To see how things
Really are

I try to get close
To feel something
To be better
Only
To hear
That I’m not
I never will be

The difference
Between me and others
Is that I’m honest
In admitting
That I’m a monster

Hate me
Love me
It’s all the same
At least you notice
