#PoetryLovers: Demons.

Invisible but the effects unmissable,

Consistent in the way the pursue a fresh mind only to grind it down into nothing more than doubt,

Good fortune brings surface smiles while deep inside the happiness is slowly being chipped away,

Feeling fearless, 

Yet the demons stay, 

Pray’s on the highs and emphasises the lows,

Leaves you in a state of frustration with confusion as to why your feeling the felt emotion,

We all have them but a person’s own is the biggest battle,

To convince yourself that life is what you make it,

Stop dreaming dreams and take it,

While they take time to seek the source of your strength,

Go to great lengths to distort your vision,

When they whisper in your ear don’t listen,

Don’t let them force you towards a bad decision,

Limit your creations with no hope of salvation,

They don’t need to be seen to be felt and to be heard,

As hard as it is it’s our motivation they yearn,

Wired to function surrounded by dysfunction demons can’t shatter my protection,

A soul as deep as the oceans around us,

Keeping me afloat in this world drowning in sorrow,

Keeping me sane as they taunt my night time thoughts,

Yet no matter what, I always look forward to tomorrow.
