HEAR ME

Hear my silent plea,
wave your wand,
break the spell,
slay the specter,
that blooms inside of me,

a creature born,
from a single roar,
nurtured on many more,

fed on,
an eye-popping choke,
a bone cracking punch,
an icy cold knife tip,
on a wet trembling cheek,

gather your sword,
crash through the door,
vanquish the demon,
residing in me,

slithering,
spiraling,
in the depths,
of me,

planting roots,
immobilizing me,

talons prick,
squeeze,
my heart,
I can barely breathe,

possesses me,

walking me back
when I need to flee,

binds my mouth,
when I should scream,

lie,
lie,
smile,

knock on my door,
see the perfection,
look into my eyes,
see this monster,
inside of me,

and save me.
