A Date With My Demons Poem by Sven Rhoads

A Date With My Demons

Tossing and turning the turmoil of the night
It keeps me from sleep and holds me too tight
Watching the hours that are peeling away
Until the dawn comes of a brand new day

Weakened by the severe lack of rest
These thoughts keep beating me down
The demons in my mind have come to infest
And in the land of nod I'm starting to drown

Why are you here to rip my mind apart
Forged from the memories to kill my heart
Is this the pleasure of my personal hell
A date with my demons for answers to tell

Poison in my blood
Stones within my heart
I need to expel whatever is inside of me

Dancing on my soul with burning embers
Why dont you leave and never come back again
I will shed you out like a snake from its skin
This is not a problem that will go on its own within

It is over and you're leaving my mind
I will tear you all out one at a time
