There are many unseen dragons that torment me in this life
There is a tiny dark creature with a vicious forked tongue Who crawls behind my ear and twists a barbed tail around my neck. It whispers bitter words and noxious notions that dissolve my sense of self- That make me believe I am nothing Unwanted worthless, Talentless and pointless.
There is the sleek silver beast Which laughs as Sharp blooded claws and rapier teeth cut and rip at my flesh Guided by my own hand
There is the fiery flash That ravages my mind to rage And fight And destroy those close to me And the things I hold dear
There is the red heart eater Who eyes glow brighter As it steals the joy And the pleasure From the things I do And from the magic moments in life
There is the grotesque malformed nightmare, That drips sickly slime And pumps putrid poison into the air As it breathes heavily on me And whittles away my will, Drains all my energy Until I can barely breathe Or get out of bed
Then there is the great beast, Of whom I only know eyes Darker than the blackest night, A despair that seeks the quickest end That teaches my surrendering soul To long for the final sleep
