Monstrous Mind

In a fit of self loathing

I chopped off all my hair

Overnight it grew straight back

As my vampire genes kicked in

And rectified

All yesterday’s mistakes


This anxious self

Adrift in the blood

Of tomorrow’s depression

Aware of all inadequacies

Before they manifest

As demons fully grown


Myself a trembling zombie

Trapped under the expectations

Of pitiless everyday

Remorselessly shuffling

Back and forth, back and forth

As vital bits decay


Vampires, demons, zombies

Prowl my monstrous mind

Fighting for supremacy

Over thoughts of every kind
