Dancing with Demons This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Tonight will be one of those nights.
The nights where my dreams are broken lights.
The nights where love is nonexistent,
People are distant,
And sanity is not efficient.
The nights where the back of my eyelids explode with color.
And the demons of my soul wake from
their slumber.
But I simply say,
Who needs sleep anyway?

This is very beautiful. The verse, "The nights where the back of my eyelids explode with color" is genius! Keep up the good work!
