Real Life Demon

Nothing can take away the pain,
Your image is burnt into my brain,
Hours spent alone to heal,
Many thoughts; only numbness to feel.

I close my eyes, I begin to pray,
These thoughts I try to push away,
Further I run, from what is me,
I am an emotional detainee.

Weighed down by a black cloud,
The demons inside would be proud,
The more I try, the more I struggle,
To escape this constricting tunnel.

Real life demon, do not stay,
I will return on my own judgement day,
These pleasures of life we do not know,
Your bliss is endless, fear your woe.

Scrambling for answers,
I do not understand,
Plagued by emotional cancer,
At the palm of your hand.

I wish you a life in hell,
Nothing can justify your actions,
I never wish you well,
Only that you burn in the ashes.
