Today the Demons

Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston, South Carolina

Today the Demons

Today the demons
Whisper in my ear,
Prick at my skin,
Pull at my synapses.
They say, I am evil,
I am never satisfied
With what I have,
That I am cruel and foolish.
They hold up reality
To my face, like a mirror,
Smashing my bright fantasies
Of hope and joy,
Like shards of glass at my feet.
They shun the Goddess,
Beating her down,
Humbling her before the darkness,
Laughing madly,
Weakening my hold on happiness.
I surrender-
Offering up my wrists,
Breathing in the darkness,
Like liquid silver.

  1. Wow, that was very potent! The imagery and rhythm were amazing, but the emotional content was something most would identify with at some point.
