In The Night

My demons keep me up at night

They sing swan songs as they play in my hair

They dance around the empty space of my room

I jst stare 

I'm frozen in thought as they taunt me

They will only leave when the Dj calls for the last song

Gathering there belongings they whisper see you later

Because they won't leave 

My demons keep me up at night 

with the loud thunderous stomps against my walls

Hopping and Hollering like there is no tomorrow

My demons keep me up at night 

See you tomorrow
