There are monsters inside of me
Finding refuge in the emptiness
They hide when you’re around
But at night they haunt me
They tear at every insecurity
Every weakness
They remind me how much I hate myself
How sad I am when I’m alone
They hurt me in ways that another human never could
The monsters know every thought I’ve ever had
Every fear and every nightmare
They use them against me, knowing I can’t fight back
Because monsters don’t care that I am fragile
Monsters don’t care that at any moment I could snap
They don’t realize that if they break me, they can’t haunt me
Monsters can’t haunt someone that’s dead
