It's bedtime now but I know better,
If I slip into sleep you'll haunt me forever
You grab me with your fingertips
Your cup of poison I will sip
My mind is now a war torn place
You've reached my dreams and won't let go
I'm tainted now, souls can't be replaced
Happiness seemed so real
But then you took reality away
And filled my head with bitter lies
Morning is too far away
To wait for your demons to leave
This time I might not wake up,
Your demons will take me away
Before i have time to scream

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Perfect word choice, you displayed your ability to say one thing and mean something else flawlessly!! as said before, great imagery as well!

Hence the category 'free verse' which has nothing to do with the consistency of rhyme >.> Just sayin'

Thank you. I wasn't intentionally rhyming, so when I did, it was an accident. But thank you for helping me consider it, I really love your work

Great job. Awesome word choice and imagery. Only thing I would work on would be your consistancy with rhyming. But great job :)
