Poem: Living with the Demons

Poem: Living with the Demons

You’re stuck in a thought

of a less than glorious time.

The pain you endured

seems to linger.

You tried so hard to hide

living with the demons inside.

The memory of a moment

so dark

and at times debilitating.

Hope is within reach

but you hang on

by a narrow thread.

The demons lurk

into your happy place

and try to turn it

into dread.

Dark shadows surround you.

However, the light is near.

Grasp onto deliverance

from the sorrow and pain.

Seek help to achieve

a mental gain.

Don’t let

living with the demons

remain.
