Monster

Not all mankind can see you
the darkness in your soul

It hides behind the charm
the evil takes a toll

Like a spider spins the web
awaiting treats of flies

The monster feasts on minds
by tricking us with  lies

Hundred's walk among us
with angry, vile wrath

Let me introduce you:
'white collar psychopath'

  7. It is scary that these monsters can be as real as the ones portrayed in movies. As you can see, I was watching scary t.v. this weekend and that's how this came to me.

  16. I have met some of these monsters. I find it best to identify people like this, steer clear of them, and avoid them at all costs. It makes like a lot easier with a lot less drama.

  17. Kathy~my thoughts exactly. I've known a few and it is best to stay out of their way/and out of harms way.

  19. Thank you kindly for your comment. I know, the real live ones are the scariest ones. Not the fictional ones in movies and t.v. but the ones living among us.
