    The voice inside of me raises it's head,
    It screams ands shouts,it wants me dead,
    It lives to watch me suffer in his pain,
    Me drowned in blood,his evil gain,
    I search for answers I can never find,
    He controls my soul,my heart and mind.

    Total darkness controls my every thought,
    This inner demon my whole life I've fought,
    With clenched fist I fight for my life,
    But he loosens my grip and places a knife,
    He mocks me now wanting me to die,
    The tears I fight back from my weary eye.

    My head is sore from his screams and jeers,
    Rolling down my face I taste my tears,
    I try to laugh at my living hell,
    The boxers saviour,my final bell,
    He wishes to release me from my eternal pain,
    Is he evil ?,or am I insane ?.

    I bow my head to his overwhelming power,
    He locks me away in my self erected tower,
    Hidden from the world he toys with my mind,
    The key to escape I can never find,
    It feels like the end has come at last,
    His mocking jeers will now be forever in the past,
    With his gift of a knife I use one final time,
    Lay me to rest ina bed of clay and lime.

    Thank you forlorn.Writing about how I feel sometimes takes the edge off it and I use it as a kind of release.
