Dark Demons

Dark Demons

Demons feeding the Darkness,
they dine off the a la carte.
Demons living the darkness
residing deep in her heart

There’s space for the monsters to grow
as the nothingness makes her a void.
From  the outside there’s nothing to  see
yet within all  is slowly destroyed

Depressions a car crash..no air bag,
akin to guerrilla warfare.
Attacks when you least would expect it
leaving just silent despair

Demons so dark, deep ,aphotic
prevent any  light shining through.
She know that each day is a battle
and she fights it again all anew.

Hi Lodigiana....I think most of us, metaphorically, fight our daily demons..However, this is much more serious and real.  I suffered demonic attacks in my sleep while I was pregnant with my  youngest daughter....I don't know if hormones brought it on, but I had pretty detailed attacks by a black gooey demon who choked me and tried to drown me over and over again in my sleep.  It was pretty scary and a time in my life I don't understand.  It was so vivid and long lasting.  I am thankful that it was over 11 years ago now but it still haunts me.  This poem made me recall that dark time.  Great work. xo ;)

Oh darling what a terrible time that must have been.. but almost certainly it was caused by the changes in your body and when it happens it must be so disturbing and I can understand why it affected you so much.. Our bodies are wondrous things which we think we know and understand but in reality  we can always be surprised..Thankfully all is well now  for you and I am truly pleased about that,,yes a dark dark time...but you are now in the light  my lovely.. and can leave it behind you. Great big hugs Cherie and sleep peacefully now angels watch over you I am sure. xxx.
