Demons of the night

Introduction:

Demons of the night

Sent to give me a fright

I wish I could give you flight

And make my life finally right

1/  The demons stalk my sleep tonight

I move my head and see the sight

They all line up, one by one

To make me the target of their fun

 

2/  Demon one is that of lust

For my need, nay desire to trust

He spews lies that really hurt

And from learning trust divert

 

3/  Demon two is that of greed

Wanting for myself as need

He shouts: you are no value!

And I take his word as true

 

4/  Demon three is the teller of lies

Which is most of my life, I realise

He makes me deny the complete truth

I need to become an honesty sleuth

 

5/  Demon four is rather stealthy

Helping me to stay unhealthy

Feeding comfort rather than hunger

He is quite the habit warmonger

 

6/  Demon five is just a trickster

Forcing you to drink an elixir

That makes you think it is alright

Instead of being equal to the blight

 

7/  Demon six is a nasty tease

Spreading evil as a disease

He infects your every mood

Leaving you of hope, denude

 

8/  There are so many, many more

All of them lean against the bedroom wall

Watching me endlessly toss and turn

Waiting for their chance to make me burn

Author:

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
