Taming Demons

May 7, 2018

I know you feel you’re empty
and know you’re feeling cold.
The untamed darkness within you
is far too much to hold.

You feel like you are drowning
lonely with the demons beneath your skin
saying “you are not enough
from outside and within”

And so you filled yourself
with oceans of tears at night,
trying to drown the scream
and make yourself alright.

But, darling, your tears cannot hush them,
that isn’t the way.
You have to conquer your darkness
and make them listen to what you say.
