She was alone again,
in that dark corner of her mind,
trying to black out the screams and the words
that replaced the soft song in her ears.
She pinched herself.
She was tired of the monster taking over,
sick of the lies she's told,
lost in her own mind.
So she bled him out,
just like the monster knew she would,
and he leaves fresh claw-marks
all over her skin.
