The Demon Within

I lay here exhausted,

Through a sleepless night I wandered,

My eyes clamped shut I hoped,

That this demon would not break through,

That my power,

However small,

Would pull me through the darkness,

And yet I lay here,


For it waited for me on the other end,

And with a snarl so deep,

It pounced,

Taking me to the floor once more.
