The monster in the shadows, is one I’ve known for years.
Lurking in my memories, he infiltrates my dreams.
And I cannot shake him, he still lives and he breathes
in the lasting darkness within me where my fears have not ceased.
I know of what he is capable, I don’t know how to rid myself of him
I am not sure that I am able, or that he will ever leave.
Now I am reuniting them both, together they will be one.
And already the darkness has company; my monster and my love.
Working together, they prepare for combat,
their reign of terror over me and I’m not ready for that attack.
Now I am facing both, surely, I do not have a chance?
