Daily demons

I live in a mind
Which might not even be real
I live in my mind
Inside I'm tightly sealed
Locked away from myself
I see demons in the shade
Locked away from the monsters
Which my mind has made
Angelic ignorance
My only saving grace
Angelic ignorance
Defeated only by time and space
Puzzling looks
On the faces of others
Puzzling looks
Masked by a face which covers
Subtle messages
Hidden by smiles and lies
Subtle messages
Flicker across the others eyes
I fight demons every day
They take the form of my peers
I fight demons every day
I have been for years
The fight goes on
I've earned the right to live
The fight goes on
I hope you can forgive
Battling monsters
Which aren't even there
Please battle my monsters
Cause I'm getting scared
