Artist's Description

they started oh so softly
whispering in my head
I could have, should have, ignored them then
when they begged me for release
but they lured me
they tricked me with their promises
got me at my weakest
they invaded my sleep
manipulated my dreams
they gave me spells, they gave me skills I didn’t have
their instructions were so easy
all I had to do was follow
word for word what they said
and I did
I did exactly what they wanted
I gave them wings
I gave them voice
I let them loose upon the world
now day and night I am at the peck and call
of their raucous demands
