Battle Within Me

Battle Within Me

A Chapter by Searching 4 Serenity

I keep having these images running through my head
As I drift away and try to sleep in bed
All these evil thoughts they make me, oh, so sad
Dreams of killing ones I love. It's the devil in us
To hell with him and his shady ways
Trying to scare us with his evil haze
I tell him to get lost, but he always comes back
I vow that I will never become like that

Have you lost your cool?
(Who told these nightmares?)
Wake up, fool!
(They leave you so scared)
These tales of demons and haunting ghouls
(Are sometimes too much to bare. My own reflection; can't stare!)

You say you'll give me all these things that are worth more than gold
But for what?
The only thing you ask is for my soul
It's an offer you give that cannot be ignored
Guess what?
I've shot you down and when I'm gone I will sore
So now I've thrown you out and have angered you
You continue to try, yet I still refuse
When all else has failed that's when you move to plan two
You fill my head with all these thoughts; Images that aren't true


(Screaming Scatter Laugh) Sic!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh) I'll sic!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh) Sic!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh) I'm 666!

*Cage door creeks&slams!*
*Softly crying in agony/heart pounding* pause...

Hominis somnium inter spem metumque  (Google Translate) :D

(8 counts) !!!HELP!!! (8 counts)
Oh, God, please help me!
I cannot take this disease
The one that's in us all
The one that makes me fall
Darkness leaves me feeling stuck
It seems I'm all out of luck
So now I'm begging, please
Bring me down to my knees

(Screaming Scatter Laugh) Sic!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh) I'm 666!

What the hell do you want from me Lucifer?
Can't you see that I've had it with your twisted curse?
Every time you just smack me down
To pick me up for another round
You always manage to give me a quick fix
But every time I use it up I'm back for more of it
So now I say that I'm leaving you
And now you're thinking, "I'll SIC you too!"


(Screaming Scatter Laugh)background
I'm going insane!
I've gone insane!
I'm going insane!
From the battle within me!
PLEASE make it stop!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh)background

~In a haunting off scale~
T'was grace that TAUGHT my heart to fear
and then it gave me peace
to take superstition as fact
Leaves us more misery

This sounded like a song, and some of the lines sounded out of tune or just not complying with the same rythm. However, I always enjoy battles of white and black, good and evil, dark and light. This poem talks about something we ALL encounter, the title is not new but the style is different. Thanks for the review on my poem and thanks for sharing this. If you're interested in such topics, I think you might like: The Madam.
