Beneath your beauty

Beneath your beauty
There lies a devil
Waiting and watching
In the shadows
Of your mind
Each breath you take
It becomes closer
Each painful day
It smiles in glee
The grim, misshapen hands
Rubbing together in elation
At the pleasure, it is given
Knowing you are beaten
Each missed heart beat
From failed love
Giving it hope
That you will give up
The devil’s hands
Wrapping around your soul
Holding it hostage
So you can’t be free
Each day squeezing tighter
Breaking you deeper
The soul giving up
The body an empty shell
Just the devil within
Waiting and watching
Praying that soon
You will quit this fight
And end this life.
