Monster IV

I am the monster hiding in your veins
playing hide and seek with your reality
the puppeteer of this show called life
the other half of our duality.
I come with no calling card
except that smile you know so well
bittersweet and barbed wire;
genetically in every blood cell.
As a monster I disappoint, for you see
I have no fangs, no claws, and a heart.
But it does not mean I have not bite
for I am daddy’s greatest work of art.
Ask me my name; I will be anyone you want
I was created to protect and please
all his secrets and her weak human life.
But for man I was created to appease.
I am a deadly monster masquerading
in the body of someone you once knew
I wear her face so perfectly now
for this game is nothing all that new.
I am a monster hiding in your body
underneath your very skin.
You’ll know me by my eyes
and the cross I bear of daddy’s sins.
