From the shadows, the monster appeared,
Sinking its claws into my darkest fears.
I struggled, I cried, I couldn’t run,
It wouldn’t listen, but I was too young.
In the dark, my vision would tunnel,
Past the times I wasn’t so careful.
The monster drove me into the ground,
A hopeless future, a kingdom-less crown.
I couldn’t escape the constant unrest,
It stalked my dreams, its mirrored eyes obsessed.
I’ve been running ever since that night,
I’ve been running from the monster inside.
