I have this demon deep within,
whose face youíll never see.
I hide him and conceal him,
yet heís always here with me.

He shows his face when youíre not looking,
he ravages my soul.
Jealousy and evil over take me,
but you will never know.

Youíll never know what sets him off,
what makes me act this way.
He turns my life upside down,
It seems heís here to stay.

I snap like a twig from time to time,
sometimes it donít take much.
Iíll come at you like wildfire,
he has me in his clutch.

Iíll cuss and snarl and carry on,
my eyes as red as blood.
My demon comes out swinging,
heíd kill you if he could.

I try to get a hold on him,
but sometimes heís to strong.
People run away from me,
I feel I donít belong.

Iím going to lock him up tonight,
Iíll throw away the key.
Iíll run like hell and hide from him,
at last Iíll be set free.

I like the idea of your inner demon taking over and forcing you to do things you wouldn't do alone. It is a cool topic.
I thought some of your rhymes sounded forced, and the flow was a little choppy in some places. The first stanza has an almost perfect rhythm, but in the second it falls apart. Something my mom has always told me- read your poems aloud. Just a suggestion.
write on!
