In the dark they wake
Drawn by the thump of misguided hearts and broken dreams,
they rise in the night.
Crawling through thick wires of frustration, your demons make your misery their mission.
You wonder how you alone could be so plagued by misfortune,
yet you forget that you constantly allow yourself the luxury of indulging these demons.
You breathe in the falsities like ecstasy and when you finally climax in euphoria, you’ve lost the will to resist the negative advances of your mind.
The things that haunt you are all the things you pave way for.
