The monster within

Red eyes

Black hair

Tan scarred skin

It holds

The appearances

Of me,

But is it me?

I cannot be sure

Whether it is 

Just a fear of mine

Or an actual part

Of me

I look 

Into the mirror

And sometimes 

Cringe at what I see

As I see

The red eyes

Black hair

Tan scarred skin

Is this monster 

Something I fear

Or embrace 

In hopes that

Acknowledging it 

Will kill it or atleast

Make it seem less intense?
