Secret
Internal flame
being fed
Growing
Growing
Painfully
Becoming a raging blaze
Soon to consume
from the inside out

Secret
Being ripped
from guts to the skin
Tiny claws
work their deviltry
Leaving invisible scars
And long messy cuts

Secret
Taking over
It's finally winning
The words
on the tip of my tongue
suddenly become frozen
Too wrong
Too impossible to say

Secret
Becoming an illusion
a nightmare past
It's so much easier
to not believe
than to know
the truth
