Monster Inside of Me
Entwining over and amongst themselves
Smashing and sucking out life
Searing pain paths of
Causing hosts to scream in agony trying to hear
Tortured and writhing trying to see
Heated knives melting eyeballs
Another gushing wave of vomit
As the tentacles squeeze and laugh
Causing much begging
Not daring to breathe
Fearing another attack unleashed
Screaming for an end
Needing to die
Wanting to be free
