Dear Monster Within, Poetry Slam: I Am... Scholarship Slam - CLOSEDThis poem is about: Me Comments Login or register to post a comment. bdelvalle 4 years ago Dear Monster Within, I am who you are. You are what I am. I am you and you are me. Together, we are invincible. Apart, I am invisible. You are my identity. We are two parts of a single entity. When the world is screaming obscenities, it’s your familiar embrace that brings me serenity We are. I am. Dysfunctional, yet beautiful. You take away my pain better than any pharmaceutical Without you I might as well plan my own funeral Because living without you is delusional You are my addiction You are my happiness and pain A bittersweet contradiction The doctors try to take you away by writing another prescription And sometimes I want you to go away From my past I can try to run But without you, who am I? I am nothing. No one. Or so I thought.
