Self-Haunting

My monster is dead and I don’t feel safe…
My monster has passed and I’m still not free…
My monster’s bites should be healing now…
So why do I still mainline the pain of the monster’s touch?


Haunted houses are filled with new souls purged…
Haunted houses are now burnt to ash and cinder…
Haunted houses are now lost in the rush of time…
So why do I still feel the house’s floor under my feet?


Mirror shows what I never want to reflect upon…
Mirror shines with light that I am the subject mused…
Mirror captured the soul of the monster, the haunt…
So now I come to awaken that now the monster lives on in me.
