A dark poem about the demon that has holds within you.

Things follow me... In the dark.
Whispering names.. Of those long dead.

The creature follows me.... In the dark.
Haunting me.... Because of my past.

The creature stalks me.... Through the dark.
Reaching for my flesh... Stomach grumbling.

The glutton stalks me... Through the night.
Craving my thoughts... Tearing them apart.

The gluttonous fiend drags me down.... In the night.
Pulling at my ankles... Scraping the back of my calves.

The gluttonous fiend claws onto my shoulders.... At night.
Ripping into my chest... Peeling out my heart.

The gluttonous fiend swallows me whole... At night.
Vomiting me out.... When the sun peeks through the windows frosty glass.

The gluttonous fiend deprived me of sleep... Through the night.
Eating my memories and destroying my future.
The gluttonous fiend is in me. The gluttonous fiend is me.
