“Shhh, don’t wake up the beast,” she said,
While tip-toeing through my mind.
The power that you’ll find there,
Withstands the test of time.
Leave it dormant, in that room –
Make sure to close all of the blinds.
Be careful, when you move –
Do lock the door behind.
For when awakened, it tends to ooze –
Trickling on electric currents’ ride.
A drastic change within the mood –
Heartbeat speeds up to time.
Adrenaline fuel links to limbs –
Passive no longer in mind.
Action is required to contain this beast –
To save my soul this time.
Ten deep breaths – to each exhale –
Negative charge unwind.
Beast oozes back through that door –
Locked away, to be used at the end of times.
