MENTAL HEALTH - Poetry

“MY DEMON”

Written by Alma Claire / Art by Joshua Ben

mind demon

my demon;

speaking in riddles and tongues while I’m sleeping

 

time fleeting

time freezing

cruel whispers as I lay drowning and dreaming

 

thoughts like circles

round and round,

running me straight into cold lonely ground

 

I’m slipping away from me

– no sound –

the sickest little game of lost and found

 

mirror confusion

mirrored illusions;

high on the lies of my own damn delusions

 

sick of myself

sick from myself,

I am the poison polluting myself

 

mind demon

my demon

little parasite of my soul, just leeching

 

why demon,

why demon?

Can’t you just let me fall into sleeping?
