The Beast

beastRid myself of this disease

Eating my insides slowly

I look in the mirror and my face melts

Running out the door and down the street

I can’t escape the beast chasing me

In the woods I get lost and try to hide

The beast finds me

I’m too weak to fight so I give in

It eats me and I become the beast

Not again, I will hurt others

Just like I was hurt so many times

I eat up everyone around me

They see me and I see fear in their eyes

I want out but the beast has me

I can’t look in the mirror again

The pain like acid burning my flesh

Is death the only way out?
