the palm of your hand.

The monster rampages through the world.
I, the Monster

You can never see me
I am elusive as air,
Burn as fire
Melt like water
Sturdy as earth.

You can feel as
I punch holes in
Your body, mind
And soul, the whole being
You cannot see me.

You can kill me
If you resolve
And control your
Desire to mix
Mingle and talk.

But you cannot,
Mostly not.
you are my easy victim,
My scapegoat to be
Throttled, mangled

Finally consumed to
My utter indulgence.
Die! you frail beings!
Thousands at a go
At my command.

I am the monster
Taking advantage
Of your weak will
Desire and inability
To handle me,

An easy kill actually.
