I keep them in me
locked and sealed
never to come loose
Dangerous demons
Ferocious creatures
Some are sweet
nice and beautiful
But most of them attack
Sink their vicious teeth
draw dark blood
make you cry
want to die

So I keep them inside me
closed and shut
never will they resurface
too dangerous
I keep them by the thousands
so many of them
Though they fill me,
I feel empty
I wish to forget them
But that would be too dangerous
they creep out and bite
tear, rip, shred

I must remember.

Remember to keep them inside
little pieces of darkness that they are.
