A hollow monster
Swimming through every vein
Residing in all of my heart
Slowly flaming its destruction
Across my drying flesh
With every timely beat
Of my chest's sorrow tune

A disruptive demon
Always whispering in my ear
Bringing doubt to every occasion
And igniting the past's hold
Like a noose as a wick

A tiresome moon
As little a companion to the night
As the love that died in one month's time
A dim crescent
Hanging from the vast empty black
That hides all that is a hope too far

A horrific thought*
That walks through my door
Uninvited, as a regular guest
And takes his seat at the edge of my bed
He tells his tale of how all will fail
And my grave will be dug for one
