My Demons

My Demons

A Poem by Gullia King

Why can't I let my demons go?
I'm forever married to the darkness.
I keep screaming into my pillow,
hoping that I'll disappear into thin air.
I light another cigarette,
hoping the smoke will choke me, 
knowing that with every new cigarette, 
I'll be closer to the darkness.
Closer to you.
We all might have something that keeps us wide awake at night, 
keeps our thoughts running wild.
Words are like knives on my skin, slowly cutting me up.
I realize, not every story has a happy ending. 
I can feel him waiting for me.
His eyes are on me.
Sucking me into his embrace.
I can feel him in my bloodstream.
I can't breathe.
He's here,
he's come out to play.

Knowing the self-destruction. One for you, and one for me, and let us see what we shall see.

I love the rhyme :)
nice beautiful work.

I'm forever married to the darkness.
I'll be closer to the darkness
I can feel him waiting for me.
His eyes are on me.
Sucking me into his embrace.
I can feel him in my bloodstream.

beautiful lines in between. if you read with another word instead of darkness then it is romantic

bit of fiction is working well, and in real its hard to live a life like this

Well wrote, we all have demons but we just have to look the other way when they come out of us.

Was my pleasure and you are welcome dear Gullia.
and this could be taken as the speaker losing a loved one to death, and feeling like she wants to join him...can't stand being alone with his memory...

we could find ways...

intense piece

So true, Jacob. Thank you for reading :)
Fascinating and captivating piece till the end. I loved this poem. When darkness and wickedness become our lifelong partner then it is nothing less than hell. We live constantly under the shadows of our fears. Interesting piece of work, Gullia. It is indeed different from your earlier pieces that I have read recently. Keep up the good work. Very nicely penned :-)

Thank you so much, Gorthi. Indeed it is. I wanted to try something different and I'm happy I did :)
A bit of truth and a bit of fiction I would guess. Seems like the start of a story that today's young love reading. Valentine
