I Am

i am
the stuff of legends
(the dark ones)

i am
the faceless
beast who hides
in your
nightmares
because
i am unworthy
to dream
alongside

i am
the portenous
chimera that burns
at night
with the fire
of eternities
coursing
like blackened lava
through
my veins

i am
the ouroboros
an enigma
consuming
myself
a perpetual
symbol
of self-destruction
in life

i am
the mindless
brutal golem
born of
dirt and mud
controlled
by forces
beyond my
grasp

i am
the cursed
confined
minotaur
the bastard
son of kings
raging
in my
nightly labyrinth

i am
not a myth
to be
wondered
pitied
or
dismissed
