Demon Named Doubt

More by this author
Panic is everywhere around me.

Everything I’ve wished for.

Everything I’ve dreamed of.

Everything is going up in smoke.

There’s a demon named doubt and he’s in my room with me right now.

He will try to kill me in my sleep.

Then cut up my heart into tiny pieces and eat it.

He’s trying to take away the one thing that truly belongs to me.

My heart. My soul. My world.

No.

He can’t win.

He can’t thrive on my misery and low self-esteem.

No.

This demon named doubt will never win.

This

Is

The

Only

Thing

I

Truly

Have.

And no one can tell me otherwise.

Not even a demon named doubt.

This is really good. I liked the middle of the poem:
"My heart. My soul. My world.
No.
He can’t win."
The short fragments almost punch you as your reading them. It's really effective.
