Email Poem | Today's Poetry


The demon that's inside of me consumes me from within,
yet, no one will ever see a single sight of him.
I've tried to drown him with alcohol yet, he still won't die,
and all the pain he causes me all I can do is cry.
I know I can not take my life and set this demon free,
for the world is safe from him as long as he's in me.
But, one day I will die and the demon will then roam,
I pray to you my friends you won't become his home.
How I became possessed is still quite a mystery,
could it have been my life that lured this demon into me?
Right now he's powerless and all the pain is mine,
behind sad eyes my heart screams out, but my life is fine.
I've lost many things from this burden I must bear,
yet, the demon who brings me sadness has brothers everywhere.
