I'm Not Afraid of Monsters

You don’t get to have me
You can’t have me anymoreI take a deep breath
Everything is okay
KindaI’m scared
I feel trappedBut there’s no reason for me to be scared anymoreYou can’t get me and you never will.You monster.“Is this what you think of me now?”
“You think I’m some kind of monster?”You’ve always been a monster,
But I was blind
I didn’t see you for who you really are.I hate being afraid of you
You don’t deserve my anxietyThe nights I can’t sleep are because the scars you leftAnd I'm left wondering if I’ll ever forget
