Demons

In my head, always lurking

Every move, an invitation to feed

I’m never rid of them, I’m never free

And they can’t be chased

Away

I set in place my blocks and safeties

Push back when they settle in

Pull away from everyone

When they darken even the bright spots

So many places to hide

In the caverns

In my mind

The black is calm and familiar

And retreat is what I know

I cannot introduce you

To the demons

That live inside me

But please

Don’t let them have me

Don’t let them

Devour

My light
