37 (who?)

Inner Demons

Silently peaceful
Praying for the prey

A saint so blissful
Don't let the old scars awake

Chaotically graceful
A storm of rage comes my way

Idle hands yearn to be unfaithful
Even the heavens won't feel safe

I am my greatest fear
I am my own worst enemy

The glares I give myself are fierce
I barely hold onto this false harmony

My twisted thoughts flicker / The acts of a sinner
The silence of a confessor / A secret held forever

The madness took over / Becoming hell's harbinger
I am the lawless; I am executioner  / This is my will; this is my terror

I hated my own reflection
Knowing the truth behind the lie

I destroyed my own protection
I tore down the walls in my mind

Beyond hateful
The light has darkened

A past so painful
Forcing fury to descend

Exceedingly beautiful
No more trespasses to repent

I am the child who became spiteful
I have been devoured by my inner demons
Unwrap the broken
Unleash the forsaken

Wow. I feel like this poem was written from my own emotions, my own experiences. How is it that the darkest work is what we can all relate to? I guess we all have the same demons inside us.

I love relating to something that is true. It's like the admiration is amplified by a certain amount. Because we know what the trails and tribulations are like.

Thank you <3 I'm glad you enjoyed this one. :)

Exactly; it is much easier to understand something we have already experienced ourselves.

You're very welcome :heart:
