The Beast Within Me

I told them to stop,
Said it with a please
Their poking and prodding
Pushing, unpleasing tease.

Then it answered
Stomping, thumping back.
My creature from the chasm
Beast of the deep.

Checked fierce rage inside,
But red-hot fury
Just threw me aside.

‘Your locks, your locks,
Hold me not, your cold steel locks,’
Now shall you know the real me
But boiling hot…
