Demon Sleep


Demon Sleep

Try to sleep listening to the voices

Demons of the day creep into my mind

Words and conversation take deep sleep choices

What was said and heard take any space they can find

My heart beats it’s self into my bed

Eyes closed as I try to place a sleepy head

The pillow makes it’s self uncomfortable as if it doesn’t want to know

Breathing heavier than I care

Closed eyed stare

Some times tears

Some times anger

Or just pure frustration

That I have let my demons in to my night sleep

Wishing just to sleep

Wishing my demons had not arrived

So my peaceful night may not be deprived

The demons love it so

As each word

Each sentence

Carry’s it’s own echo

Eventually I don’t know when, the demons let me go

I awake rattled not really ready for what was tomorrow



About darkersideoflight

Hi welcome to my world, I just noticed i have been writing here since 2011. You probably stumbled across me one way or another. I have been writing since the age of sixteen and soon I will be 49. I call my words poetry but i see the words as potential lyric to a song and one day when I have the time and money this is a road i will follow but till then I will be here. Please feel free to contact me if you are a musician or a band looking for a song writer and you feel you could work with me thank you and have good time where ever you may be.
