The Battle With Myself

I'm Just passing some time
Lost in this rhyme
While I grapple through my night

As the demons resurface
And attack me with purpose
While me and the past reunite

I choke on the smoke
From the fire they stoke
Slowly melting this heart of gold

Happiness is deferred
Attempting to heal with words
And tend to these wounds of old

I fight with all my might
Yet victory is not in sight
Nor is the light of day

So through the darkness I roam
This darkness, now my home
These demons are here to stay
