Her demons come out at night.
They embalm her in fear and drown her in sorrow.
She screams into the silence
but there is not a sound.
She’s frozen like an unseeing statue
with just a pounding heart beat to soothe her.
And all she can do is THINK.
As the first rays of sunlight hit,
her demons slink back into the depths of her mind.
And they wait
for the darkness to surround her once more.
