Demon Within

My heavy eyes closed
And appeared before me
A creature, demon, parasite
Which only resides within oneself

It’s eyes hollow,
Hair unkempt
And face, bleeding.

It appeared before me
Every time my eyes closed
Moving its mouth, as if to chew.

It didn’t move closer
But chewed on,
My flesh, and organs were no longer mine
But taken as it’s midnight snack

I prevent myself
From being consumed by it.
But now, it’s consuming me.

Slow and steady as it goes
Taking parts of me, bit by bit
Ripping my parts only to hurt me.
And make me feel as if I have nothing.

The silent war it had started
Has now been detected.
But it is now too late.

I have been destroyed internally
And now I have only one option.
