The Inner Demon

The inner demon sits and hides,
waiting to tear you up from inside.
He bides his time waiting to pounce,
awaiting your downfall ounce by ounce.

The negative thoughts, and total self-hatred,
are building up until you can’t take it.
Everything said is taken badly,
and you begin to interpret your whole life sadly.

You feel a failure as a daughter, wife and mother,
convinced you’d be better replaced by another.
You feel hopeless, alone, scared and misunderstood,
Self obsessed, worried and nothing is good.

You seek solace from the grape,
your worst mistake.
Then you scratch and you pick until you are bleeding,
unable to understand how you are feeling.
The inner demon has you in his grip,
and you feel your heart is starting to rip.

But as a new day dawns and the mist starts to clear,
the light is increasing and your angel is near.
You begin to feel loved, valued and worthwhile,
So much so that it makes you smile.

For now you have sent the demon back down below,
and positive feelings start to flow.
