Not this Beast

Unburried roots


I am not this beast 

as you'd referred to me

though he does 

live inside of me


in my gut

and he's been trying to escape

so he's been tearing me apart

from the inside


I feel his gnarly claws



ripping my guts out


but he's not yet free

and I'll not allow him to be

he showed his ugly face

it was such a disgrace


shapeshifter ...


made himself look 

like he was me

but I tell you

My face does not look like that


if only you'd looked closely

you'd have been able to see

I am not this vial being

My heart is open and free


always loving 

everything and everyone around me

no longer will I allow him

to live


this parasite

he will die tonight

and I will wake up

to my beautiful new life
