Image for the poem in the shadows all the demons scream

in the shadows all the demons scream

ride the notes and climb in
anxious rebellion in an acute rhythm
I feel the steady looming fear

exacting emotions the demons cut into me
I feel it, yes, I feel it
it hurts but I kind of like it
I want to run but I can't look away

pain coming on like a strobe light
flickering doubts my thoughts on fire
god, I feel this strung out doom

streaming in midnight's glare
I stare at the devil in the play
pale and astir I revel that I'm just out of reach
giggling madly I come close then pull away
what an evil little bitch I am

bite, snap oops he's getting nearer
the boogie man wants in
slick with the movement I make my escape
a trigger for sure this dude is insane

stalking the night I disappear
then come back for one more look
boom the trap sprung
I'm caught in my own night opera
