The Fiend In The Dark

Demon’s,  in the Hollywood sense, don’t exist.

There are no ghosts, no supernatural beings that await for perfect timing to join a symbiotic host of innocence.

I’ve seen true evil.

Touched it.

Lived with it.

Loved it.

Monsters are not devised physically, they’re conceived.

Preying on the vulnerable who are easy targets that will devote little to no pushback.

Making every effort to break their victim’s into pieces so small, hope of ever being whole again is forever lost.

Survival is a strong instinct pulling one through the tunnel to the light.

The fiend in the dark takes away much, but not a will to persevere.
