Read Poem: Conscious Monster, by LayeDaWriter

Oh, well there friend

Why won’t you tell one, where you’ve been

I mean you don’t have to say, because of course I know

That there, is a secret I’d never show

Remember, I told you once you gave up your mind it was over

In the back of your head, cruising, you as my chauffeur

Want me gone, yet the fun has only begun

You gave a part of yourself and wasn’t thinking of a refund

Now, where do we go from here you ask

Take a sip from that flask

Close your eyes, this may get bumpy

The next morning you may be a little grumpy

All the while, I sit back and watch you squirm

But due to your lack of awareness my grip became firm

More control I receive, as you fight Throw in the towel, exert no more might

The battle you urge to win, you lack the most essential tool

This battle resulting in a loss playing you as a fool

Yes I am the master and you come to me for the ultimate decision

One bad choice, and I eat at you slow with precision

Without me, you run through the world as a mad man

Bit and pieces of what you see create me, yes I stan

Once upon a time, you had the power to shift me in your own way

Yet you chose to let society devour you, creating more of me day by day

With you forced to be my driver, helping me collect more

I’ll get the things I need to help reach deeper into your core
