"The Monster"

I've witnessed your suffering

Your deep pain unparalleled

Open yourself Love's flower

only to wither and die


I've heard your secrets bemoaned

Intimate and euphoric

Here envelopes you a cave

whose dark vastness steals your cries


I've felt your red betrayal

Naked in your rape and strife

At last, flee from this monster

who enshrouds in every lie


I am this Monster.
