    dotsLeviathandots
    -------------------------------------------


    Monstrous worm
    dwelling in my inner pool
    awake.

    Feel the foreboding
    presence in essences
    of twists and turns
    and thrashing splashes
    that lap and spill
    over the side of a square.

    Self-contained.
    Merely illusionary
    for chaos
    cannot be mastered
    can it?

    As I enter dark, chilling water
    a spikelled, pre-historic head rises
    and a scaley muscled, whipend
    whaps and slaps, swiping
    children aside like
    flies swatted by a horse's tail.

    The creature evades me
    leaving waters for land.
    Three doors offer limited choice
    exit stage right
    it rages unchartered corridors
    and I flee.

    Back to the water
    I come stage left
    as the creature
    re-enters and rears its head at me.

    I stand in authority
    and I point my magic finger
    "STOP!"

    and it does.

    Into it's eyes I look fully
    and order
    "STOP".

    and it shrinks.

    All manner of beasts are shown
    as from beast to beast it shrinks
    to a mere worm
    and re-enters the pool.

    Leviathan has me not.

      It sounds like to me this person refuses to allow his or her demons to control or devour them in life. The use of Leviathan is a great ananlogy. Here is a monster that is deadly and hard to spot taunting this person outright and the peron takes control of the sitiuation and thier life by putting a stop to any damage doen to them. The fact the person had faith in themselves and would not allow the beast to ruin them shwows the person has tremendous inner strenght. This was very good. I'm not sure what you would add to this, it seems fine as is to me. Great work!
