the beast you have painted me to be, with your dirty hands, my body like a clean canvas. don't put your filth on me.

there’s a monster in my soul

it’s getting hard to control

because sometimes, at my worst.

this thing happens

my lungs are filled with fire

and it's claws are out

and my tears are hot

and the monsters teeth

break skin like a blade

and now you’re bleeding

this rage in my heart

it’s getting hard to stop

i think it runs in the family, this monster

it jumps from person to person

and now it’s curled up in my chest cavity

it’s made a home in my ribs

it’s torn open my body

and devoured what’s truely it’s to take

your hands weren’t supposed to go there

the monster doesn’t like people who touch me

you touched me

the monster reared it’s head

and now you’re on the ground, shaking

i’m shaking too

i’m sorry






y’know what?

i’m not sorry

fuck you. and fuck that.

i am the monster.

when you see the fire in my chest crackle

you run

like the coward you have always been

i will tear into your body

and rip you to shreds

like the monster you always say i am

i will eat your heart out

in front of you

and your tears will fall, just like mine

hot and liquid.

i have become the monster.

you shouldn’t have put your fucking hands on me.

Molly: I wasn’t sure if I wanted to start this one as the characters are a bit younger but I wanted to see if this poor girl would finally be able to be free of abuse and open to accept love (family) and be able to heal. It’s is great so far, minimal spelling errors, I think the Spanish isn’t necessary ...

Rosanne Moroneso: I really like this story and hope it continues. A fed grammatical errors but easily overlooked as I enjoyed reading it.

Raphaella: Au début j'étais un peu sceptique, mais au final je me suis rapidement laissé emporter par l'histoire. Le style d'écriture est plutôt pas mal, on arrive facilement à se projeter dans les lieux de la trame. Les personnages sont bien travaillés, on s'attache facilement à eux. Bref j'ai passé un bon...
