The Beast Within

You have awaken the beast within me
One which laid dormant
Free of intrusion
You have dared to wake it from its sweet slumber
To initiate a battle of cunning and wits
In one single moment you have declared war
On my very soul - With your presence
Where I once felt empty - you filled me
Where my heart was barren - you brought harvest
When my heart lied- denied me love
You brought truth
You complete me
For fear of losing myself I shall stroke this beast
Relinquishing him of his desire to devour
To retreat into the barrenness to wake no more
Putting an end to the fire that is raging within me - for you
