Demon Within - Poem by Cat Summers

Though angels touch my face,
Within thy veiled innocence lays a demonic race,
Whose blood-ridden and morbid illusions cloud my inward vision,
And threaten to break lose,
Crumbling the very foundation beneath me,
Yet divine angels still touch my face,
Their sanctified fingers brushing my tender cheek,
Binding the demon within for yet another painstaking day,
But some day the fierce beast will snap the ashen chains that bind him tight,
Throwing me into a world of sheer and utter darkness,
And the beloved angels will be nothing more than rays of hope
Silhouetted in the distance,
As the demon within pursues me down the tunnel,
Of a horrid hell
