a dark creature

There’s a creature in the shadows
Thump, Thump, Thump
Thump, Thump, Thump
Step back, one, two, one, two

Two arms, and legs, red eyes, and yellow teeth
Thump, Thump, Thump
Thump, Thump, Thump
Can’t look at the vile creature

The creature on two legs walks to me
Thump, Thump, Thump
Thump, Thump, Thump
Too scared to move

Its hands around my neck tightly, choking me
Thump, Thump, Thump
Thump, Thump, Thump
Overwhelming to breathe

More creatures step out of the shadows
Thump, Thump, Thump
Thump, Thump, Thump
Cornering from everywhere

The hideous creatures laughing menacingly
Thump, Thump, Thump
Thump, Thump, Thump
Hatred runs deep for them

The demons in my head are whispering
Thump, Thump, Thump
Thump, Thump, Thump
It’s sweet and sickening to my ears

Tormenting it is, I thought
Prayers and cries yielded no fruit

I’m on the border don’t know what to do
Left and right can’t see any light

I’m not scared anymore for I have a desire to sleep
In the sleep, the demons and the creatures were gone

Wish I cease to exist in this meaningless world
The body has its mind, and its desire to live grows strong and stronger
