No Thought Too Dark for the Monster

No thought too dark for the monster
the beast will bare its teeth.
The innocent taste of false hopes and dreams
and the Angel of Mercy is torn limb from limb.
No point of contention.

Who am I to decide
if love is just another word for weakness?
Guilt demands punishment and violence leads to violence.
The retribution must fit the crime.

Guilt demands punishment
violence leads to violence
when a creeping burden yearns to devour the heart
through vivid memories that tell of a dark history.

Fearfully repressed,
regretfully denied.
A monster lays dormant below the mind.

Rise to the surface,
there's no place left to hide.
How much more hate within me will I find...?

    You nailed this one on the head, Yoni. Altho many do not understand how it is the mind can become the monster, But I point to the monster that Hitler created by thoughts of his mind, under his Nazi dictatorship. II Corinthians 10:5 states that we should cast down every imagination that exalts itself against God, and ofcourse God is love.God bless, Sincerely, John Moses

    How sad to think that love is "just another word for weakness." But I do believe man's emotions make him frail and vulnerable to the monsters that dwell within. Knowing you, Yoni, there is no monster inside your mind. It's just the angst and regrets that we all feel from time to time. Very thought-provoking write! You certainly know how to awaken us to different perspectives. Love you, Carolyn
