Demonic Plague

Demonic Plague

A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

I honestly don't even know where this came from but when I wrote this is what came out.

"

I have an infatuation with demons

that inexplicably pluck innocent

thoughts from the mind and

replace them with pure evil. 

 

If I can’t fight them off

I will find myself drowning

in a pool of blood and death

while slowly roasting in hell.

 

Where do we find strength

when all we know has already

turned its back on us and

left us to rot in a world full of hate?

 

We leave our lasting impression

by defining the strength we find

even if only momentarily to fight

and destroy what is our fate.

This is so of a fantasy form of poetry; some of the choice of words depicts mid-darkness and horror. Words like pure-evil, drowning in a pool of blood and death, roasting in hell, are threatening to the poet and knowing such predicaments are sure to come unless he defeated that which need to be fight off, haunts him. Many things are to be drawn from this piece of amazing write-up, but this I've for now. Thanks for sharing.... Bona!

This sounds intense and dark, but I like the mention of fighting. The last part makes me think of when we fight even though we know we have no chance or hope. Very nicely done!

It is so hard to pull yourself out of your mind when all it is doing is ripping you to shreds from the inside out . I really liked that you ended on what felt like a more positive note. Good write.

Self-mind control is at the root of zen. When at first you do not succeed … stop thinking so hard:)

Thank you very much... I will keep that in mind ;)
I think this is the symbol of the inner battle we all have. If anyone tells you they have never had these thoughts, at least once, they are a liar.

We have a battle deep inside. Battling monsters and demons created from our experiences of deceit and pain. From our own minds, as we try to delude ourselves.

You expressed it perfectly in my opinion. This coming from someone who has openly discussed her battle with her own demons.

Great Job, Aaron.

sounds like a sub-conscious tug-of-war, fighting between what you know is right and wrong. Thanks for sharing :)

Thats pretty much what it is Isabella :) The inner battle to try and find that perfect balance.
Very deep. Reminds me how it is our will to live that pushes us to fight our demons.
