Inner Monster

He knows that beneath every smile
there’s a darkness that he can’t conquer.

He sees shadows dance on her skin
and can’t stop the guilt from taking over.

He believes the truth of her nature
is hidden behind grins and laughter.

A single thing consumes him —
the need to reach out and save her.

But he understands how unlikely it is
for him to rescue her from her inner monster.
