The Monster

I was my mother’s future with lanky black hair.

My silhouette naked and empty.

Raised in a landfill left to decay.

It happened…

I walked to find nourishment.

“Get Down”!

The Beast thrust me in the muck.

My Temple ravaged not a morsel left.

Distorted blood gushing down my identity

Beautiful I was, but like a butterfly, I morphed into a monster
