There is a Monster in my Closet

by rileymo

There is a monster in my closet, He does not come out, He just stares at me as i sleep, Shout abuse from his twisted mouth

There is a monster in my closet, He is my biggest enemy, He has caused me far too much pain, And all he had to do was speak,

There is a monster in my closet, He is why i am unsure of who i am, He tells me to grow up and act like my age, But he has me so doubtful i am even unsure of my own name.

There is a monster in my closet, He is tearing me from the inside out, Watching me bleed, All without laying his wicked claws on me.

There is a monster in my closet, He has begun to drive away, My family and friends, Do they even know who i am?

There is a monster in my closet, He is just as confused as I, He has been hurt like I, Has endured pain like I.

The monster is stuck in that closet, And because of that, He and i wont come out, Even if its all we want.
