Psyche – (n.) the spirit or soul
-Algia – (suff.) pain

Algia of the Psyche

********

Deep inside it burns
The desire to deviate
The urge to do wrong

Deep inside it waits
The compulsion to hurt
The yearn to draw blood

Deep inside it rests
It sleeps and grows
It corrodes my soul

Deep inside it sings
Reach out, give pain
Make the world dark

Deep inside my soul
It claws the barriers
Pushes to be free

Deep inside my psyche
The pain becomes too much
The deep becomes shallow

Algia of the psyche
Pain of the soul
Bane of the good.
