Deep Inside

He hides all deep inside
He buries all deep inside
He twists and turns deep inside
A snake coils around his heart deep inside

He can’t run from what’s deep inside
He can’t hide from what’s deep inside
No escape from what’s deep inside
It festers deep inside

He’s changed deep inside
Fighting daemons deep inside
Anger and hate deep inside
Pinpricks of fear deep inside

There’s no fight deep inside
No angel to help deep inside
No rescue for him deep inside
Helpless deep inside

But he seems fine wholly outside
Everyone loves him outside
They embrace his being outside
Little knowing or caring what’s deep inside

What embraces his soul deep, deep inside…
